Should These Types Of Running Injuries Be On Your Radar?

Uncategorized Sep 08, 2020

Pulled hamstrings, IT bands, and Achilles injuries are always in the limelight when it comes to running injuries.

And it makes sense, right? When we think of running injuries, these are the things we typically hear:

"My IT band is so tight. I foam roll it every day and it just won't loosen up."

"I keep pulling my hamstring when I try to push pace."

"I started running hills and my Achilles is sore."

And honestly, I think we medical professionals tend to gravitate towards diagnosing running injuries in this way.

In our last post we talked about a client who had a surgery that should have been avoided.

Her name is Kristen and she had a surgery to repair a broken bone in her foot that was completely preventable. She had early signs of a bone stress injury when she originally went to the doctor with foot pain...

THESE SIGNS WERE MISSED.

She was told to "take it easy," and sent home. By the time she consulted with AMP Performance Rehab, it was too late.

HER INJURY PROGRESSED FROM A STRESS REACTION TO FULL BLOWN FRACTURE.

Bone stress injuries are no joke. They are also frequently missed by medical professionals. And I bet that they are not even on most's radar when you walk through the door.
