Struggling with pain during or after runs?

Chiropractic in Washington DC for Running Injuries

Do you have pain in your back, hips, knees, legs, or feet during or after runs? Running requires your entire body to work in unison to provide a smooth stride. Because so many areas are at work during a run, the lower body is subject to a wide range of injuries and conditions. Due to the wide range of causative factors, pain in back, hips, knees, legs or feet may develop gradually or come on suddenly. Even the most minor running injury in Washington DC should be treated early to help prevent progression.

  • Plantar Fasciitis

Treatment for Running Injuries

The first step in treating any condition is identifying the muscles/structures that are causing the pain and helping that structure heal and regain normal range of motion. This is done by utilizing chiropractic adjustments and/or soft tissue techniques such as Active Release Technique, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM) or Dry Needle Trigger Point Therapy.

The second step is correcting any underlying bio-mechanical issue that caused the area in question to become overworked and subsequently become injured. This is done by identifying any weak areas during movement patterns and then strengthening them so they no longer put extra stress on the area in question or any other areas.
