To enjoy running and stay injury free, a foundation of good quality movement is required - before you begin to build a base and increase your capacity.  As Physiotherapists working with runners everyday in the clinic, we see the toll that running can place on the body.

When the demand on your tissues exceeds your capacity, your body starts to compensate, becomes overloaded and finally breaks down.  Pain and injuries can hamper your training and lead to serious long term problems with your muscles, tendons and joints.  

To escape the 'boom/bust' cycle of pain and injury, a long term approach to building resilience is needed.  Time and patience is required  as you undertake a step-by-step process, allowing time for adaptation in the tissues.
