Unfortunately, injuries in running are very common, with the research revealing at least 50% of runners will be injured at a particular point in time.
Why is this? Well like other injuries, running injuries are multi-factorial, therefore a detailed examination and history are paramount to reveal your contributing factors. Once these have been identified, then measures can be put in place to rectify these, and get you back out on the running track!
