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

Vi behandler nervesystemet, da smerte er et respons på en kompensation et andet sted i kroppen. Hjernen bearbejder indtryk fra nervesystemet og respondere derpå. Vi finder årsagen til at dit nervesystem sender forkerte signaler og din muskulatur er svag. Du vil kunne mærke forskel efter første behandling. Der er ingen knæk eller vrid i behandlingen, men fokus på at få stærke muskler omkring de påvirkede led.

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 du er med, på alle mine løbeturer🙃 Jeg har løbet 10 km uden smerter idag🤩 efter arbejde, hvor jeg har cyklet 22km, det er helt fantastisk🌞 af hjertet tak for du skrev. Jeg kommer helt sikkert igen😃

Vi fjerner årsagen til din løbeskade – hurtigt og effektivt.

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.
