Awesome infographic providing recommendations for running injuries based on the Physio Edge podcast #59 with Tom Goom, Greg Lehman & Christian Barton!
Here is a summary:
1. Runners become injured because they exceed their tissue capacity's to tolerate load.
2. Runners need to be strong enough to manage the loads experienced during running.
3. Strength and conditioning in runners may improve load tolerance and performance, preventing injury.
4. Running should only be stopped for as short a period as possible when injured before resuming again, unless otherwise recommended (i.e. stress fracture). 5. Use the 24 hour pattern to monitor how the runner reacts to running post-injury. If pain does not subside in 24 hours, reduce the volume.
6. Changing foot strike pattern may be appropriate for the treatment of certain conditions.
7. Running shoes are less important than running biomechanics.
8. Running retraining should start simple and expand over a period of time.
9. Periods of stress and lack of up sleep may delay healing up to 60%! #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #running #runninginjuries #runningshoes #marathon #athlete
