Many running injuries develop as a direct result of the repetitive nature of running. Repeated impacts and forces experienced during running are often described as ‘shocks’ to the body and, over time, can cause significant stress and strain on your lower extremities. Running injuries are mainly caused by joint overuse, but they can also occur as a result of trauma, for example turning your ankle over on a curb.
Whatever the cause of your injury, it is vital that you get professional treatment as soon as possible, as small chiropractic treatment can significantly help reduce the chance of long-term damage. Here at Thorne Road, we can treat a variety of running injuries, such as:
