Many runners are starting to hear/read more frequently that although a particular pain FEELS like it’s coming from e.g. the knee, it’s actually being outputted by the brain & nervous system. An explanation of the significance of this distinction typically follows, but by then all the average runner is thinking is “So you’re saying this pain is in my HEAD?” Needless to say, this can often be harmful for the therapist/runner relationship!
Chris Johnson: Physical Therapist, certified triathlon coach, multiple time Kona qualifier talks to us about about the assessment of runners for injury & performance, a topic he will also be addressing as one of the speakers at the ‘RCL International Running Conference 2019’ this October 30/31 in Brighton, UK.
“I need to buy some proper running shoes for the first time. I’ve had a hip problem and my physio says go for something minimalist as I should be running on my forefoot but the running shop said I need ‘stability’ shoes for my pronation. What should I go for?“
“I’m looking to get fitter in 2014 and have taken up running. After few runs, I have started to get a dull ache in my knees, which slowly increases. I visited the doctor but they weren’t able to find anything. What am I doing wrong?”
I haven’t been able to run for 6 months. I’ve been resting all the time because of shin splints but am now getting aching symptoms in my lower right leg on the outside, even when I sit down. It feels very sore when I run my fingers along the bone and just a few minutes of walking can start it. Maybe I have to accept running is not for me?
I always have a pain in the back of my leg and sometimes up into my bottom when I sit down. I always warm up and stretch after my runs but sometimes pain stops me from running and hurts when I pick up my daughter who is 3 years old. Any advice appreciated.
The muscles in my legs are always very sore for a couple of days after running. I stretch a lot before and after my runs but this does not seem to help. Is there anything else I can do?

Any runner who has struggled with a persistent injury will know that there’s an awful lot of choice out there when it comes to choosing a therapist.
