What are the most Common Injuries in Runners?

The four most common injuries that I see in runners are heel pain (plantar fasciitis), neuromas, tendonitis, and broken bones.

Plantar Fasciitis in athletes such as runners can be caused by the unique structure of your feet, overpronation, or wearing running shoes that are too flexible and or worn out. Neuromas can be causes by wearing running shoes that are too flexible, or shoes that don’t have enough padding. Tendonitis can be caused by overuse – beginning runners in particular need to be careful not to do too much too soon. Broken bones are also common in the foot. Even if you can walk on the injured foot, don’t rule out a fracture. If rest, ice, and elevation don’t stop the swelling and pain after a few days, see a podiatrist for x-rays to rule out a fracture. Don’t let any foot pain become a chronic problem that hinders your running performance, get help right away.
