Where It Hurts Common Running Injuries

Proximal Hamstring Tendonitis Symptoms: Pain in the hamstring in the back of the upper leg. Cause: Over striders are prone to this. Their legs can be too straight when they land, forcing stress on the hips and hamstrings. Fix: Stretching of hamstrings and IT band can help relieve pain in this area. Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms: Discomfort in the bottom of the foot in the arch area close to the heel. Cause: Tightness in the calf muscle may pull on the heel awkwardly. Sudden increase in miles may cause this to occur. Fix: Stretch your ankles against a wall or on a stair before and after you run as well as a few extra times a day.

Patient Spotlight

Minimal to no pain!

“When I first came to this clinic I was scared and in a lot of pain. My first visit, my therapist was able to tell me what was wrong and what needed to be done. I had a bad knee sprain which caused a lot of limping and pain. Within 10 visits the people at iMotion had me walking normal again with minimal to no pain. I can kneel, bend, squat, stretch and stand up with no problem. For that I am very grateful.” -E.G.
