Runners with London Marathon 2011 Charity Places face dilemma

Friday, January 28th, 2011

2011 London Marathon runners with a charity place need to make sure they do not get injured during their 2011 London Marathon training programme.  After Christmas the mileage begins to increase as you get closer to the race in April. This is where injuries tend to develop and need attention.

This is a crucial time in the marathon runners training programme and as such any running injury will set you back at an important time.  More importantly if you have raised money and have sponsors for a charity place then you need to complete the race in order to collect the sponsorship money for your chosen charity.

Running injuries are common with high mileage training and can be minor to severe in nature.  Most importantly you should get niggles checked early before it develops into something more serious.  Early intervention might make the difference between success and failure to the marathon runner.

Common running injuries include hip pain, achilles tendonitis, shinsplints, knee pain, blisters, plantar fasciitis and calf strains.  Tight IT bands, runners knee and tendonitis can all cause problems and stop you running if not treated early.

Information on running injuries can be found on the website www.runninginjuryclinic.co.uk  and the Solihull Sports Injury Clinic in Solihull Birmingham have a dedicated running injury team of sports physiotherapists,sports therapists and sports massage therapists.

Sports massage helps you recover quicker from long training runs and is an opportunity to uncover potential injuries during the massage.  Stretching is very important as is often overlooked by runners.

Prescription orthotic foot insoles and biomechanical evaluations are available for runners that overpronate and suffer overpronation symptoms.  The sports podiatrist will evaluate your gait and biomechanics and supply you with an orthotic device to correct your overpronation problem.

Birmingham runners can visit Atlas Sports Injury Clinic for sports massage, physiotherapy and sports injury treatment.  Telephone 0121 745 8792
