More often than not we are never taught to run, it is a skill we are expected to pick up naturally. Many athletes develop an inefficient technique. This results in excessive forces on the muscles of the foot, leg and pelvis which can cause injury or reduce performance. It is not just for elite runners, whether you are starting the Couch to 5K™ programmer or racing Marathon des Sables we can help.
Athletic Groin Pain
The Athletic Groin Pain Program is unique. Rather than focus on a single joint, or single muscle strengthen or indeed offer a surgical tensioning or detensioning – Dr Andy and his colleagues Dr Eanna Falvey and Enda King use 3D Motion capture to look at the energy force leaks between body segments.
Lower Leg Pain
Lower leg pain is a commonly diagnosed overuse injury in recreational runner with an incidence of 27-33% of all lower leg pain presentations. Typically, patients present with incremental pain on exercise, which is described as ‘tightness’, or ‘constricting pain’.
The pain and symptoms are alleviated by rest and occasionally coexistent with temporary paraesthesia or foot slapping, however typically the individual is able to briefly recommence running prior to a recurrence of symptoms.
