Running-related injuries are very common. When a runner picks up an injury, they know that it requires treatment. However, they are not willing to seek treatment from just anybody. They need treatment from someone who understands them and knows what they are training for. In short, someone who knows why they are out there pounding the roads and towpaths every morning, evening and weekend.
According to recent research, between 20% and 70% of runners get injured every year. That is a staggering number of runners out of action at any given time. At The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy we will work with you to develop your strength, flexibility and endurance to minimise your risk of running-related injuries in the future.
