Runners injuries - November 11, 2015 7:32:57 AM

Hi all,
Any physical therapists who are runners? Need insight on treatments. I am a pt, frequently injured since hitting 55, and find myself and fellow runners increasingly injured and not able to find pats experienced with treating runners. I am a female and it seems more of the women than men have been getting injured. Thoughts?

The increased stride length required to run starts at the thoracolumbar junction. It requires good motion through the lumbar spine, pelvis, and hips. Lack of mobility through these regions sets up a situation where soft tissues can become irritated. Regardless of plantar fasciitis, patellar tendonitis, or trochanteric bursitis, to name just a couple, the solution is to look at the whole leg in the context of normal mobility and stability.

Hey even I am looking for a physical therapist. I had a serious injury and I'm slowly recovering from it. My teeth got chipped and I had was immediately rushed to a dentist in Oakville ( ). My jaw bone got fractured and I was under soft diet for a few days. Now I have a severe pain near the hip region. I guess something happened during that injury. I didn't pay much heed to it as I had major injuries near my jaw.

Have you ever foam rolled before? I have personally found it a life saver.

It's really not about men vs. women with running injuries. Most runners get injuries from time to time because of the volume of exercise, overall joint impact, and the repetitive nature of the sport. The best thing that you can do is to make sure you have the best footwear and inserts that you can get for your body and foot type. Secondly, you need to spend time in the gym doing cross-training exercises to minimize injuries and to build up balanced muscles.

Hi All,
It has been a while since I originally posted. I can say (hesitantly bc I don't want to jinx it) I have been fairly injury free, some hamstring tightness, but nothing to interfere with running. I have done 2 full marathons, 15 halves and 3 triathlons, and (to look at me, a 59 year old female who needs to lose 10 pounds, you wouldn't know it LOL)! I found religiously running 3 to 4 times a week, not taking breaks longer than 4-5 days, and strength training 2-3 times a week has helped tremendously. I used to run seriously, stop, restart etc. Continuously running has helped a lot.
