Running brings about many health benefits and is an increasingly popular sport, especially among those who are 20 - 59 years old. Running injuries are common with as many as 79% of runners getting injured at least once during the year, and of which 50% of them suffer from recurrent injuries. SKH Physiotherapist, Joanna Wee, listed runner’s knee (pain around the knee), shin splints (pain along the front of the shin bone to the ankle) and plantar fasciitis (heel pain and/or pain in the sole of your foot) as 3 common injuries experienced by runners. She provided advice on how to prevent the injuries and demonstrated stretching exercises to increase the flexibility of the lower limbs. Joanna also shared that if a runner often experiences pain when running, they should seek a physiotherapist’s advice before resuming training so as to prevent further injuries.
