Pain in runners...the different stages of pain.
Many athletes who experience pain while running go through a few stages. 1- No pain. “I feel great!” 2- knee pain, hip pain, foot pain, or back pain that comes on AFTER they finish running 3- Knee pain, Hip pain, Foot pain, or back pain that comes on WHILE they are running BUT ONLY after a set number of miles 4- Knee pain, Hip pain, Foot pain, or back pain that comes on WHILE they are running BUT NOW shortly after beginning 5- Knee pain, Hip pain, Foot pain, or back pain that comes on Immediately when they start running BUT they choose to run through it anyways. 6- Pain that is always there, “I’m going to run anyways.” 7- “My pain is so bad that I cant run and my ____ hurts all day long. It’s even waking me up at night!” # Masking the problem with quick fix techniques may seem like a good idea now, but the next step is to figure out what's causing your problem in the first place and fix it permanently so you don't have to deal with your problem again! # Many runners struggle with the 'pull' portion of the run cycle. These struggles can lead to foot, leg, knee, hip, and back pain. Heres a drill to help you develop a better pull! # Questions? 👉DM me for more information👈 #crossfit #footpain #chapelhill #cary #rehab #jump #jumprope #run #runner #marathontraining #plantarfasciitis #triathlete #triathlontraining
