Tips For Runners To Avoid Injury

Mark and Brian here from Fitness4Life Physical therapy. We want to talk to you about running. Running is very popular with people. It’s a great exercise, great sport. This time of year, I’m sure a lot of people going to be out there running just because as the weather gets nicer, it’ll be very nice to be able to get there and do that. But statistics show that up to 50% of the runners are injured at some time. And up to 80% to 90% of that can be training errors. So, what you want to do is not don’t run to get in shape, you train first to go out and run, so that you are able to handle the stress because running puts a lot of stress on the body.

That doesn’t mean it’s bad, but you want to be prepared for it. And there’s exercises that you can do to prepare yourself for running. So, you want to get yourself strong enough and healthy enough to go out and run, so you can do your sport and not be one of people that are injured. Stay tuned to our YouTube channel. What we want to do is give you some good exercises that you can do at home to get you ready for running. Because running is basically a single leg sport, everything is done on one leg, you need to be strengthening one leg at a time. So, this month, we’re going to give you different exercises that you can do for running to help get you prepared for it. Don’t be one of those statistics. But if you are, we can help you.
