About Running Injuries

Running has one of the largest participation rates in Australia. Recent Statistics from an Australian Sports Commission’s survey showed an estimated 1,224,100 Australians aged 15 years and older participated in running . Running is a popular fitness activity, however running can cause injuries.

Join our Physiotherapist Ryan West for a 45 minute presentation on why 70% of all runners are vulnerable to an overuse injury in the next 12 months and don't even know it. What are the top 5 running injuries and how to avoid them. The 3 most important things you must be doing to avoid overuse running injuries.

The Causes An Types

How many injuries?

  • Up to 70% of recreational and competitive runners sustain overuse injuries during any 12-month period.

The causes and types of injuries

  • 42% of all running injuries are to the knee, followed by 17% to the foot/ankle, 13% to the lower leg and 11% to the hip/pelvis.

  • Overuse injuries can occur from training errors (running frequency, duration, distance, speed and lack of leg strength and flexibility) and inappropriate surfaces, terrain and footwear.

  • Overuse injuries, as a result of training errors, are more common than acute injuries such as ligament and muscle sprains and strains.

  • The most common overuse injuries are patellofemoral pain syndrome (runner’s knee), iliotibial band friction syndrome, plantar fasciitis, meniscal injuries, tibial stress syndrome and patellar tendinopathy.

What does this mean?

Frustration and prolonged time for runners to be away from what they love doing. The average time of not being able to train or compete is greater than 8 weeks with an overuse running injury.

Most of them can be avoided

Come and learn the secrets that elite runners use to avoid injuries. They actually run more than you and generally have less injuries.
