Want to run faster?
We all strive to beat our previous run time. It’s easy to just go out and run faster but how do we do that without getting injured?  Most people develop running injuries when they do “too much, too soon, too quickly”. They feel good during a run and push themselves a lot harder and longer than they’ve gone before, either by increasing the amount of kms they do in a week by too much or trying to run faster than they have before. Now of course it is important to consistently increase the load through training as this is the fundamental way we adapt physiologically, but how much is too much and what sort of training should you do each week. This question is hard to answer as we are all different and we all respond to the stresses placed on our body differently. One runner may respond to high intensity workouts well with a dramatic increase in performance.  While another athlete may respond poorly to the same program and become overtrained or injured. So how do we know how hard to push ourselves or how to reduce our risk of injury? You don’t! It takes time and knowledge and you need to seek professional help to develop a program that is right for you.
As a Sports Podiatrist I generally see a runner when they are injured. This is normally due to overuse, muscle imbalance, poor training, improper shoes or issues with their biomechanics.  Obviously the aim is to prevent these injuries from occuring in the first place so consequently we have developed a running screening program designed to highlight any deficiencies and then correct them.

Does your child suffer from heel pain?

Calcaneal apophysitis or Sever’s Disease as it is better known, is regularly seen amongst active adolescents experiencing growth advancements between the ages of eight and fourteen. 
The young athlete, particularly those who are experiencing both physical and physiological changes in the lead up to maturity can be at increased risk of sports related injury. The main causes of this form of heel pain is:
Physical activity – any form of exercise that is weight bearing through the legs or stresses the soft tissue can exacerbate the pain of the disease. Particularly running, basketball and football.
External factors – for example, running on hard surfaces or wearing inappropriate shoes during sport.
Overuse injury – very active children may repeatedly but subtly injure the bones, muscles and tendons of their feet and ankles.
