Common Running Injuries: Prevention and Treatment


Injuries from running occur due to prevent running injuries so you can enjoy your favorite form of exercise as long as possible.

Stress fracture

Most stress fractures occur in a runner’s shins and feet. More specifically, stress fractures are the result of small cracks in your bone that cause pain and discomfort. Runners that overexert themselves while they are trying new techniques are particularly susceptible to stress fractures. If you suffer even a minor stress fracture, rest your bone, so the injury does not worsen.

Runner’s Knee

The most common injury among runners is runner’s knee. This injury is due to deteriorate with time, this is of particular concern with older runners. This injury will be apparent if you are going up and down steps, sitting with your knees for long periods of time, and when you are squatting.

Shin splint

For those who like to new intensity levels, and stretch frequently.

Pulled Muscle

Also called a muscle strain, pulled muscles are caused by minor tears in your muscle. Most people that pull their muscles do so because they were overstretching. At the moment that one stresses a muscle, it will be similar to a popping feeling, much like when the muscle tears. Use extra precautions when you are using your calf, hamstrings, and quadriceps muscles. The most effective treatments include using ice, thoroughly resting, raising the specific area, and performing compression exercises.

Ankle Sprain

Ankle sprains are due to stretching your ligaments located your ankle or partial tearing. Ankle sprains happen when your foot rolls or twists inward. Some of the most common treatments for sprained ankles are raising your foot, resting the affected area, and putting ice on your ankle.

Achilles Tendinitis

Also called Achilles tendon, Achilles tendinitis is when the large tendon that connects the calf to their typical routines, and it will get worse if your calf muscles are rigid. To treat this condition, regularly perform calf stretches, keep the affected area rested, and put ice on it.

Plantar Fasciitis

Also known as plantar fascia, plantar fasciitis is when tissue from the bottom of your feet, resting your foot, and performing regular calf stretches.

IT (Iliotibial) Band Syndrome

This syndrome causes pain in the upper portion of the knee. IT band syndrome is due too difficult.


Blisters are fluid-filled sacks that are located on the to using new running shoes.

Injuries due to Extreme Temperatures

Many running injuries are a result of added strain. However, a fair amount of injuries are due to dress appropriately, put on sunscreen, and drink plenty of water.

How to Reduce your Risk of Running Injuries

To eliminate the danger of suffering any running injuries, it is important to take a few steps in advance. Below are several techniques you should employ:

Pay attention to your physical limits
Cease exercising if you feel any pain. You should expect tor.

Build a Workout Plan
Before you begin your workout, talk with your trainer about your exercise plans. Trainers will work with you to your long-term exercise goals.

Stretch and Warm-up
Some running injuries happen due to stretch include the hamstrings, calf, groin, and quadriceps. Make sure you warm up for at least five minutes before you begin stretching as stretching cold muscles might cause injuries.

Cross Train
Mix up your fitness routine. Never run exclusively. Consider rock climbing, swimming, walking, yoga, tennis, or another activity. Cross training will help prevent overuse injuries that frequently occur as a result of performing a similar exercise over and over again.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
