BACK INJURY ADVICE

Back injuries are common amongst runners. The back can be injured by poor posture and movement patterns, overloading it during running or more commonly a combination of the two.

Often poor Core Stability is a factor.

Physiotherapists should be able to diagnose the condition and will treat the cause of the problem using primarily exercises. These may be to stretch tight muscles and strengthen any weak muscles particularly around the deeper core area.

They may also use massage skills to release any tightness in the back or hip. Sometimes it will be necessary to manipulate the back to reduce pain or increase movement.

Physiotherapists may use acupuncture to release tight muscles and relieve pain. The problem will settle with a gradual return to training accompanied by a Core Stability exercise programme. Our 'ground breaking' weekly core strength class is designed for runners to improve control around the hip, back and pelvis.
