Kerrville: Be Healthier, Stronger, & More Active

“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.
