BOOK A RUNNING ASSESSMENT WITH JONATHAN STANLEY
AT THE LEEDS BACK AND FOOT CENTRE
Runners can be vulnerable to a host of injuries; one of them is foot pain / foot problems.
Awareness by the runner is important and they should take care in the following situations.
1. When you first take up running during the first 3 months
2. When the running time has been increased
3. When the speed has increased
4. Returning after an injury
Running injuries can be due to reoccuring factors and may be avoided.
Several things should be noted prior to running.
Suffiicient rest between training
Taking care on hill training
If you are in doubt regarding the suitability of your running shoes it is always best to
see a podiatrist to make sure you will be wearing the right running
shoe, and a shoe that fits perfectly and also fit the right foot type.
The podiatrist will be able to assess you prior to you taking up the exercise of running,to make sure that you do not have any abnormalities in your hips or knees.
Also if you already have back pain or groin pain, always get this checked out prior to training.
The Leeds Back and Foot Centre can arrange running on a treadmill machine prior to starting
this form of exercise.
