Does it hurt when you run? It shouldn’t!
Dr Luke Nelson, Chiropractor & Enhance Running technician at Health & High Performance, has a special interest in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of running related injuries.
Have you noticed that we are taught how to do many sporting skills such as tennis, golf and swimming, but rarely, IF EVER taught how to run properly?! Just like any sport there is a right and wrong way to do things. Through poor running technique, many people put their bodies under a lot more load than it should be when they run. This leads to sore backs, shins, knees or even shoulders and necks. Poor technique means that you work harder, go slower and feel worse when you run than you should.
Some of the common technique faults we see in runners are:
· Poor posture
· Incorrect arm swing
The good news is that these can be corrected! A running technique analysis by Dr Luke Nelson can help you determine where your imbalances are, and how you need to correct these!
Are you sick of injuries interrupting your running training?
The ENHANCE Running technique analysis is designed to help identify and correct errors in your running technique that can put extra stress on areas such as knees, backs and shins. Every step with poor technique takes you closer to your next injury.
Does running seem like a lot of hard work for you whilst others appear to almost float along when they run?
Most runners ‘leak’ energy when they run. A combination of work postures, unhelpful footwear, misconceptions about running and previous injuries can see us using a lot more energy for each step whilst we run than we should. Dr Luke can help you to identify and fix those energy leaks, making running easier and more fun. Find out how to relax when you run and learn to run with ease and enjoy getting fit even more.
