THE BEST RUNNING TRAINERS CAN PREVENT RUNNING INJURIES
HOW TO REDUCE YOUR RISK OF INJURY BY CHOOSING THE BEST RUNNING TRAINERS
Whilst the right running trainers aren’t likely to heal a given injury, the right trainer on the right runner or sports enthusiast can help.
If you want to minimise your risk of a running injury or a sports injury on the court or pitch, make sure you pick the right footwear. The support your trainer gives your foot is vital for injury prevention. Don’t just think poor footwear can cause foot pain and ankle pain. Common running injuries and sports injuries such as Achilles, calf tightness, tight hips and low back pain can all be caused by poor footwear. In our clinics we commonly see patients who are wearing inappropriate footwear for their training or match and have developed running injuries or sports injuries due to their poor footwear.
Whilst we talk about the importance of the right trainer for sport, the same applies for our day to day footwear. Flip-flops and pumps may be cool for summer but they provide no support to our feet. Wearing them for inappropriate activities such as a long walk or for long periods of time whilst we are on our feet at work, will only increase the risk of niggles and injury. So keep the flip-flops for the beach and make sure you wear supportive footwear when you are on your feet for hours on end.
