Running often gets labelled as a high-injury sport. Statistics show that 30 to 50% of all runners get knee pain from running every year. And this is besides the ligament tears and hamstring injuries that marathon enthusiasts face while participating in year-round running events that happen in Singapore.
So, what can we do to avoid the risk of injury and at the same time conquer marathon distances safe, sound and with flying colours?
Knee pain refers to pain that occurs in and around your knee joint. Knee pain can be caused by problems with the knee joint itself, or it can be caused by conditions affecting the soft tissues, ligaments, tendons, or bursae that surround the knee.
The severity of knee pain can vary widely. Some people may feel only a slight twinge, while others may experience debilitating knee pain that interferes with their day-to-day activities. In most cases, self-care measures can help you cope with knee pain.
Shockwave therapy is its own treatment for a lingering injury, or pain resulting from illness. You don’t need painkillers with it – the purpose of the therapy is to trigger the body’s own natural healing response. Many people report that their pain is reduced and mobility improved after the first treatment.
