The hands-on approach to preventing and treating injuries in runners
Chris Mallac

Drawing from the knowledge and experience of our panel of sports scientists, physiotherapists and sports therapists we have compiled a holistic, technical and hands-on approach to understanding, treating and managing running injuries.

The report covers prevention, physiology, core stability and technique, and includes case studies and illustrations throughout. It will stay with you as an invaluable reference point through your running career, and not only help you stay injury free but also increase your biomechanical efficiency for long term gains.

The majority of runners whether fun, club or elite have had to go through the irritation and frustration of injury.

In most cases, as an athlete, it’s not the pain of the injury that’s the problem, it’s the unknown parameters and consequences of this injury that is the real thorn in the side. How did I get this injury, have I been overtraining, how long will it last and, most importantly, will it re-occur?

If you are lucky enough never to have experienced a running injury, then no doubt you have trained with people who have been plagued by injury problems.

The fact is that we all know that “prevention is better than cure”, but until we have experienced the aggravation of a running injury we are usually too complacent to accept this rule of thumb and do anything about it.

With this in mind, I’m pleased to introduce this special report on Running Injuries.

Drawing from the knowledge and experience of our panel of sports scientists, physiotherapists and sports therapists, from both Peak Performance and the Sports Injury Bulletin, we have compiled a holistic, technical and hands-on approach to understanding, treating and managing running injuries.

The report covers the assessment and importance of the kinetic chain, biomechanics and training tips to prevent injury. The next section is slightly more technical and takes an in-depth look at the physiology behind specific injuries that may be affecting you.

The final section of the report looks at the POSE running technique and the problems of muscle imbalances while running and practical exercises to address these important concerns. Plus the perfect way to execute the squat, one of the frequently contested and often controversial exercises that we see carried out in gyms today.

Thanks to our panel of experts, we hope this report will stay with you as an invaluable reference point through your running career, and not only help you stay injury free but also increase your biomechanical efficiency for long term gains.
