- Everyone knows that running is a fantastic exercise, that's why it is reported that 64 million Americans went running or jogging in 2016.
Running is one of the first steps a person will take to improve their fitness or health, which doesn't make it surprising that there are so many injuries involved. Whether a seasoned runner or a beginner, it is reported that up to 80% of runners will be injured each year. The main causes of injury for runners are:
History of Previous Injury
Lack of Recovery
While some injuries can be minor and easy to accommodate, others can be much more serious, require months of rehab or non-weight bearing conditions. The table chart below lists some of the most common running injuries, their causes, and most common treatment methods.
If you believe you have suffered an injury from running, make sure you consult with a medical provider as soon as possible. As you can see, some injuries require a person to be non-weight bearing, requiring assistive devices to get around. These are crucial to the recovery process because it is often that a running injury can be repeated if not given enough time to heal. Making sure you take the proper precautions to stay off an injury is one of the most effective things you can do to get back to running.
