Physio and Pilates for Runners
The number of people running is always increasing – which is great news – but whether you are a seasoned pro or a social jogger, the stats show that there is a fine balance between progressive training and avoiding injury.
This is not a suggestion to stop running!!! But we would urge you to consider your running on a deeper level!
So how do you keep running and avoid injury? Glen suggests the answer is multifactorial – considering “Correct running form”, “Running Load” and “Imbalances in the bodies muscle system”.
To address each of those factors a good start is to consider your awareness of your body, how it moves, and your ability to influence/control movement.
Here comes the advertising……..our lovely physio Laura Collins has just completed a course on the “Functional Biomechanics of Running”. The course focused on gait and running analysis, re education and injury prevention. Identifying previous injuries or mechanisms which affect running style and addressing them through dynamic and functional activation exercise to correct running technique.
We already ready treat a high number of clients who have experienced running related problems and all of our physios are experienced in this area.
In addition to the services our fab physios can offer, there is now evidence to support the theory that Pilates can help decrease injury in runners - great news!!
We run both day time and evening Pilates classes here at Back Into Action, all instructors are qualified physiotherapists who have trained with the APPI.
