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.
