"How To Stop Annoying Running Pains WITHOUT Injections, WITHOUT Painkillers, And WITHOUT Having To Slow Down Or Stop Running All Together!”
If you’ve recently picked up a Running injury, or if you’ve been suffering with an injury for a while - it can be very tempting to pass it off as “nothing serious”, “it just needs to rest”, and simply “put up with it” carrying on as best you can.
Or, it can be very easy to get disheartened and end up feeling “stuck”, wondering if you’ll ever be able to get back to running at your normal pace or get back to enjoying a race here & there like you used to…
If that's happening to you, you're not alone - we see people going through this type of thing all the time. In fact, runners are one of THE most common types of people we have come to our Physical Therapy clinic in Denver no matter what time of year it is…
I spent over 17 years of my own time in sports including playing collegiate basketball and now I enjoy training for marathons and triathlons - so I’ve personally and professionally seen just about every sports injury there is - and know how to help people recover from them. Whenever athletes got injured in sport - we started treatment the next day.
That is the complete opposite to the way that most people respond to getting a running injury, and is why so many people suffering with a running injury are asking themselves:
“It’s Been Months Now - So Why Am I STILL Suffering With This Injury That’s Stopping Me From Running the Way I Used To?
Most people think that when they get a Running Injury it’ll get better with a few days rest, and that they’ll be able to just get back to putting miles on their feet again quickly. But then when they go back to run again they’re still restricted - sometimes it’s even worse than it was when it first came on. Often when you rest there is little if any pain - but as soon as you start up again, it comes back and no matter how much rest you give it - it doesn’t seem to be improving.
Does this sound Like You?
Another scenario we see all the time in our clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them they need to take a break, rest, wear a support and “try these painkillers” to “see how it goes” - They may even order an XRAY or MRI and chalk it up to something that was likely in your knee, hip, or ankle all along before this pain even came on.
The problem is that when it comes to sports injuries - hamstrings, ankle sprains, runner's knee etc., - complete rest is rarely the best advice and trying to find root causes on imaging is rarely ever correlated with the symptoms you feel.
Maybe you’re confused and frustrated because you’ve been told different things, by different people. Maybe you think you have a knee problem - but it’s actually the hip where the problem came from?
Running injuries can be very confusing because more often than not, where the pain is coming from, isn’t actually the area that needs to be fixed and worked on and if you rest for too long - other parts of the body become just as, if not more problematic.
Worse, many people just end up accepting or thinking that ‘their days of being active are over’ - as if it’s normal, as if it ‘has’ to be this way.
Has this type of thing happened to you?
Maybe you’re confused because you've been told different things by different people. Maybe you think you have to rest because you've been told walking makes knee pain worse, or that you should be doing "this exercise" to make it better.
It's very confusing to know exactly what to do - and that's just to avoid making knee pain worse!
And because of this confusion - this often leads people to procrastinate and put off making a decision about what to do to help fix their Knee Pain. Worse, many people just end up accepting it as "part of life" - as if it's normal, as if it has to be that way.
