Are you Prone to Running Injuries?

Running injuries can be devastating to a runner and some runners have more than their fair share of them. A running injury can prevent us from running for months or longer and it is difficult to know when it's safe to return to running. Many runners are very frustrated with a continuous cycle of recurring injuries. What can we do to prevent future injuries and to recover more quickly when we do have an injury?

You will find below various strategies on how to deal with running pain and injuries, advice on the cause of injuries, how to speed recovery and specific help on common running injuries. You can read about the experiences of other runners and share your own running experience with injuries.

Running Injuries

  • How you Breathe While Running Could be Causing Running Injuries. Our breathing is often an overlooked consideration in the incidence of injuries. However, how we breathe is extremely important, not only to running but also to our health and longevity. If we are not breathing properly, it will place a great deal of stress and tension on our bodies which can result result in injuries and illnesses. 
  • Learn How to Meditate on Running Injuries. It is very effective in helping to speed healing and reducing the incident of future injuries. When you develop a running injury, it is an indication that your body and mind are not in balance or in coherence. Meditation helps to bring the mind and body back into a balanced state, allowing healing to occur naturally. 
  • Many people say that running is bad for your joints and will cause problems as we get older. This article provides much evidence to the contrary and indicates that there is no reason why we cannot continue to run into old age if we are sensible: Go Ahead, Run Into Old Age!
