As an official Virgin London Marathon Injury clinic, we see more running injuries than most. Our Physio’s at Canary Wharf and Marble arch are experts in diagnosing and treating all running related injuries.
Common running injuries:
ITB friction syndrome: pain or stiffness on the outside of the knee.
Achilles tendonitis/tendonopathy: pain in the thick tendon behind the heel. Often very stiff in the morning.
Patellofemoral pain Syndrome: Pain felt around your kneecap.
Plantar Fasciitis: Pain is felt under the heel and along the bottom of your foot.
Shin splints: pain located along the shin bone.
How does Physiotherapy help running injuries?
Most running injuries are due to a problem of biomechanics (eg: weak gluteals, tight muscle, excessive foot collapse/pronation), poor loading (you may have increased mileage too quickly), or poor equipment. (maybe your shoes aren’t supportive enough). Our expertise lies in diagnosing the cause of the problem and the structure giving you pain. We can then design a treatment program, that is individual to you and helps you get back on the road to recovery. Treatment can include a range of options, including dry needling, shockwave therapy, deep tissue massage/release, and joint manipulation/mobilisation. You will also be provided with a specific regime of exercises to help improve your biomechanics.
Our Physio’s are some of the best, and running injuries are some of the most common conditions they treat. So, if you have a running related pain why not book in and start on your road to recovery?
How long does it take to fix?
Recovery time varies according to the injury. Simple problems may only require a session to help you to self manage the problem yourself, while more complex problems will need more regular treatment. As a guide, 30% of patients with running injuries need only 1 session. While 60% only require 3-4 sessions. In order to prevent the pain from returning it’s important to continue with a specifically designed exercise program that will help ensure you run pain free. This is a home based regime, so you don’t need to keep coming back!
What happens if it doesn’t improve?
If after 2-3 sessions your pain isn’t improving, we may refer you for further investigations. However for 80% of our patients, physiotherapy cures their running related injury.
