What Causes Most Running Injuries and How Can Physical Therapy Help?

When you experience pain from a running injury, the injury is often in a different area than the pain. For example, the most common running injury is Runner's knee, and this injury is due to weakness in the core, hips and improper running form. Our team at Flow Physical Therapy can help treat this and many other injuries, strengthen the correct muscles, and teach you the best exercises and stretches to ensure they do not become chronic issues.
