Effective treatment of running injuries

Do you have a running related injury?

Many runners get hurt from running. Often this is because they have increased the distance to fast. Running injuries in the form of pain from the hip, knee or ankle are frequent. It can also be tibia or pain in the groin or buttocks that stops the exercise. Other diagnoses are runners' knees in connection with the tendon streak on the outside of the thigh or jumper´s knee from the patella tendon.

Get rid of your running injury

I treat the nervous system as pain is often a response to a compensation somewhere else in the body. The brain processes the impressions from the nervous system and responds to it. When I treat you I very often find the reason your nervous system sends the wrong signals and therefore your musculature is weak. You will notice the difference after the first treatment. There is no manipulations or twists in the treatment, but focus on getting strong muscles around the affected joints.

A case from the clinic

A runner came with an injury to the hip which caused pain at longer distances. I treated her and now she runs easily 10 km which was her goal.

Feedback from the client:
“Annika you are with me on all my runs🙃 I have run 10 km without pain today🤩 after work, where I have cycled 22km, it is absolutely fantastic 🌞 From the bottom of my heart thank you very much for writing. I will definitely come again😃 ”

I remove the cause of your running pain - quickly and effectively.

Why does it hurt?

When we experience pain, it is information (input from receptors in the nervous system) from the area that is interpreted by the brain as pain. Your nervous system is overreacting and trying to protect the area by tightening up the muscles. Imagine a lamp that can be turned on and off, if it is on and the cord of the lamp breaks, the lamp will always light up. Likewise, your nervous system can send too many signals and thereby be on / overactive. I therefore process the information that the brain receives so that the muscles can relax and you are no longer in pain.

Risk of injury
Running is a great burden on the body due to the many repetitive movements. If there is an imbalance in the muscles, it will be affected many times during a run. Each muscle has a primary function, e.g. the thigh muscle extends the knee, at heel set as the primary function and is secondary in doing hip flexion as you swing the leg forward, along with the hip flexor. If muscles are not working optimally, the support muscles will be able to go in and help or completely take over. They become easier to overload and in the long term you will be able to get injuries and pain in the body - also places you do not immediately think are related to the race.

The injury area is the shoulder in this case, but all injuries are treated based on the same concept.
