5 Common Running Pains and How to Fix Them

Running is a rigorous and physically engaging activity. Sometimes, your body may not withstand the pressure it experiences as you run. Here at MCR Chiropractic, we understand the pains you may encounter while running. We can help you properly address whatever pain or discomfort you may be experiencing through chiropractic care.

Plantar Fasciitis

Every time you’re running, you overload the tissue (plantar fascia) at the bottom of your foot. This will lead to recurring pain, which can even be felt when you’re walking. To deal with this pain our chiropractors suggest stretching your calves as well as applying a cold pack to the painful area. Please consult one of our offices if pain lasts more than 2 weeks.

Shin Splints

Running pains can also be very prominent due to shin splints. Shin splints are a severe pain that can put you out of action for a lengthy period. It is essential to work with our qualified chiropractors to determine the best solution for your shin splints. Stretching exercises and chiropractic care can help!

IT Band Syndrome

IT Band syndrome is a running pain that occurs when any part of your body succumbs to overuse for many reasons including overuse or poor back, hip, knee or foot mechanics. It can emerge as knee or hip pain. Chiropractic care has remained the primary method of dealing with IT band syndrome because it reduces inflammation around the painful area. 

Patellar Tendonitis

Runners tend to develop inflammation in the tendon around the knee cap. It makes it very hard for patients to squat, run, kneel, and even walk. We can help you recover from this running pain by recommending various corrective exercises. Resting will also help in minimizing inflammation. 

Hip Pain

Hip pain is very common among runners. It causes significant mobility problems. If your hip pain happens occurs regularly, it is recommended you see one of our chiropractors to determine the root cause.  It may be your spine, your knee, or even your foot that is out of alignment causing this pain.  Our chiropractors have specialized training to determine what the cause truly is.
