COURSE RE-OPENED FOR ENROLMENT
Starts Thurs 1st August 2019
As a recent study highlighted, up to 75% of all runners suffer from running-related injuries annually, so there's a pretty good chance if you're a runner that you're either currently suffering from a running-related injury or you will do at some point in the not-too-distant future.
So we want to help
Here at Women’s Running, we have created this bespoke online course, which will cover everything we know on avoiding and recovering from running injuries the right way.
In this course you’ll learn about six of the most common running injuries. We'll show you how to identify them, recover from them, and show you how to avoid them happening in the first place.
1) Iliotibial Band injury
The Iliotibal Band (ITB) is a common upper-leg injury for new runners, often caused by overuse. This can lead to swelling and pain on the outside of the knee.
2) Hamstring injury
Hamstring issues account for 26% of all running injuries, with one third of runners re-injuring them within a year.
3) Runner's Knee
Runner’s Knee is a generic term for pain at the front of the knee relating to the patella (knee cap). The most common cause is overtraining, followed by poor lower limb biomechanics.
4) Shin Splints
Shin Splints is one of the most common lower-leg injuries among runners – particularly those who are new to the sport.
5) Achilles Tendon injury
This tight tendon is synonymous with an area of weakness – and for many runners, it’s exactly that.
6) Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is a common cause of pain at the heel, usually on the inside, and unfortunately is more common in women than in men. It’s related to the structure we call the plantar fascia, a band of thick fibrous tissue that comes from the heel bone and stretches under the foot to the toes.
For each of the six modules we'll start off by introducing you to the injury to help you understand how it happens (and why it hurts!). Then our physio will explain how to safely strengthen and recover from all of these injuries. Finally, we'll demonstrate strengthening techniques to help avoid them happening again.
