running injuriesWhen Spring begins and the weather gets warmer, many runners start to come out from dormancy and resume physical activity. Data from Google shows that around this time there’s also a sharp increase in searches related to shin splints, a common running injury.

In addition, many doctors claim that this time of the year is when they frequently get a lot of patients suffering from shin splints or similar injuries. "A lot of people weren't outside running on the pavement in the winter,” stated Penn State Hershey Medical Center physician Dr. Matthew Silvis. “When the weather starts to get nice, people get excited and start running again, and they just haven't been doing it for a while."

Being inexperienced or out of practice at running can make one more likely to develop an injury. If you have recently hurt yourself while running, visit podiatrist Dr. Greg Khaimov, DPM of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC. Dr. Khaimov will evaluate you condition and help you get the care you need.

How to Prevent Running Injuries

Many common running injuries are caused by overuse and overtraining. When the back of the kneecap starts wearing out and starts causing pain in your knee, this is commonly referred to as runner’s knee. Runner’s knee is a decrease in strength in your quadriceps and can occur if you’re not wearing properly fitted or supporting shoes. Runner’s knee usually is treated with strengthening exercises focusing on the quad muscles and sports orthotic. To prevent runner’s knee, focusing on hip strengthening is a good idea, as well as strengthening your quads to keep the kneecaps aligned. Physical therapy can help you learn the best exercises to heal runner’s knee.

Prevent Running InjuriesResearchers in the U.K have come up with a suggestion for a running shoe that takes tiny springs generally used in beds to captivate the shock of a sprinter’s foot hitting the ground. Injuries emerge in more than 70 percent of runners in a given year; in spite of the improvements in the structure of running shoes being put out in retail stores said Jim Richards, lead researcher.

Shockwaves are generated when a runner’s foot hits the ground, which may lead to foot and leg injuries such as shin splints, runner’s knee, or stress fractures, states Elizabeth Palermo of TechNewsDaily. "If you had a car suspension with just a damper and no spring in it, then you'd have a very bumpy ride," Richards said in a statement about this year's Summer Science Exhibition. "Therefore, having a shoe that incorporates both provides a much-improved shock-absorbing system compared with existing technology."    

While the creation of this product hopes to help prevent injury, injuries may still occur.  If you have sustained an injury while running or wish to learn more about how to prevent running injuries you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. Greg Khaimov of Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee, LLC.
