Written by Sundial Clinics Friday, 10 February 2012 12:02
Knee pain, muscle strain, tendon pulls, bursitis, ligament sprains and all sorts of other aches and pains are a constant reminder that marathon training and actually running it can be a hazardous business. One in five people who enter for the Brighton Marathon will not complete it because of injury. We aim make sure you are not one of them.
For the next few weeks we are offering a free Runners MOT especially aimed at runners in the Brighton Marathon and the half marathon. We want you to be fit, strong and ready to run.
Our physios will check you out top to bottom concentrating on your footwear and leg and foot movements. We will check all the usual things like over-pronation but also things that often over-looked like jamming of the hinge joint of the ankle which changes stride length. We will look at knees, hips and backs too. At the end of our Runners MOT you will have an in depth risk profile of the likelihood of future running injuries and a plan for prevention.
So don’t let a niggle turn into a pain, call to make an appointment.
