Treadmill vs Road Running

Compare advantages of a treadmill and road running

There are many differences when it comes too depending on the route you choose or the incline settings you set on your treadmill. Besides these basic differences, your muscles and tissue are worked differently because of the different surfaces.

A road is a lot tougher and less forgiving than a treadmill.

While running on a treadmill you have an environment that never changes. There is no change in surface, direction or need tors you can help prevent future re-injury. If you are an athlete coming back from an injury, the treadmill is great in gathering a more precise calculation of how fast you’re going, the traveled distance and slope or incline.

If you are training for a certain event with specific time goals the treadmill is a great way to get tired you would slow your pace and may not notice it.

Running on the treadmill is easier on your body than running outdoors on a road. Your joints will thank you if you decide to help with the impact on their joints when they have bad knees or are recovering from an injury.

Even though running indoors on a treadmill is safer. Running outdoors on a road gives you a new scenery and is less boring. You also have the chance to become stronger.

Running on the beach requires your body to work extra hard, while having a low impact on your joints. You test your leg strength, core balance, and endurance.

Running outdoors is great because your feet and leg muscles are constantly needing to add in more variety.

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.
