Running is an incredibly popular sport in Australia and there are many participants in the Cheltenham, Moorabbin, Mentone, Highett, Hampton, Black Rock, Beaumaris and Heatherton suburbs but did you know it’s also one of the sports with the highest incidences of injury?
According to Sports Medicine Australia:
The reasoning for this is likely the repetitive nature of the sport where little issues can then cause more stress and strain becoming painful over time.
Our Return To Running has a comprehensive history taking and assessment process going above and beyond what other clinics do, so we can identify the root cause of your running related injury. This process utilises the latest technology including:
Next our treatment process achieves pain relief in the shortest amount of time by using hands on Physiotherapy and Osteopathy techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint manipulation, articulation and stretching techniques including the use of the True Stretch system.
Finally your management plan will involve an individualised training plan to build your running movement capacity (muscle and tendon strength, stamina, specific flexibility) as well as increasing your movement skill to make you more efficient out on the road, track or trail to bullet proof your body from injury and increase performance.
If you suffer from running injuries such as plantar fasciitis, patellar tendinopathy, patellar tracking syndrome, ITB syndrome or back pain when running contact the Injury Rehab Centre – Physiotherapy and Osteopathy in Cheltenham to join our Return To Running program.
