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

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.

Hip Pain Management

Hip pain may prove to be a real issue, especially if you have had other similar conditions in the past. Although it is common in women, the pain on the hip may very well be found in men, especially if the calcium levels in body are low.

Pain of the Neck Possible Causes

More often than not, the pain of the neck may be caused by a number of very specific conditions and diseases, and you need to be careful when trying to determine the exact cause of your condition.

In general, such pains are associated to a faulty posture and this may very well be your case, especially if you spend too much time at the computer and you don’t follow ergonomic rules to diminish the possible effects of such a reality.

Shin Splint

Shin splint is also known as tibial stress, felt as a throbbing or ache in the shins. You might probably have felt this when you sprinted to catch that moving bus or even during your daily jogging.

At times, the condition tends to heal by itself, as it is not strictly speaking medical condition. The shin splint is more a symptom of a deeper problem.
