Common Running Injuries
- Pain in the muscle or joint
- Swelling and bruising
- Difficulty walking or weight bearing
- Feeling of instability
- Tightness and/or soreness
- Lack of flexibility or loss of range of motion
Treatment for running and sports injuries centers on honing in on the cause of the injury, not just the symptoms you are experiencing. While treatment revolves around reducing your pain and returning you to your sport, we must address the underlying problem for effective rehabilitation. With soft tissue therapy, rehabilitation exercises and flexibility training, physical therapy can often get you quickly back to your sport with no consulting with multiple different doctors for an answer and a “quick fix” intervention.
Our Treatment Process
F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic uses soft tissue therapies such as A.R.T., instrument assisted soft tissue therapy, dry needling and joint mobilizations to improve overall range of motion and tissue resistance for optimal movement.
The chiropractors & physical therapists at F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic will work with you to expose where your specific dysfunctions are occurring that are causing your painful symptoms and incorporate sport-specific exercises and drills to address the problem. We want to keep you off the sidelines, so we will do everything we can in the office to help our runners keep going before or after an injury.
