Common running pains stop you from achieving wellness goals. Here’s how massage tech helps prevent pain and injury among recreational and athletic runners.
Dull, throbbing pain in front of the knees; Sharp, stabbing pain from the ankles; Tight and cramping calves - any of them sound familiar? Whether you’re a marathoner, a track athlete or a recreational runner, there’s a good chance that you have experienced one - if not all - of these running pains.
In fact, a Harvard Medical School study stated that up to 75% of people experience running pains every year. Most common pains include sprained ankles, pulled hamstrings, runners knee, and more.
While resting and taking meds have been the go-to remedy for many runners, these are band-aid solutions at best, and do not help much in preventing pain in the long run (pun definitely intended).
Finishing that 15K marathon or hitting 10K steps through running IS rewarding. You worked hard and going for that extra mile of running is fulfilling. However, your body can only take so much and it will let you know when it’s reached its limits.
Which means as a runner, your knees suddenly give up from under you. It feels weak and cannot support your weight, which causes you to fall forward. Your ankles send shots of stabbing pain every time you take a step.
You can’t move around properly, much less go for a run the next day. Worse, you suddenly get leg cramps while you’re walking or driving which is extremely dangerous not just for you, but the people around you.
