It’s now less than a week until the Manchester Half Marathon; we have noticed a lot of you guys have been training hard for this fantastic local race. The course is known for being very flat, prefect for hitting that PB! In fact last year 74% of the top 50 athletes recorded PB’s for the season.
The team here have been working hard with a number of our fantastic clients to get everyone prepared for the big race; we’ve been using a combination of physiotherapy appointments, massage sessions and rehabilitation programmes to get all our runners in tip top condition for Sunday.
Many of you long term runners will be aware that there is an ever growing list of running related injuries, some of the most common ones we have been treating here at G4 include;
1. Shin pain (front of the lower leg)
2. Calf tightness and pain (including the Achilles tendon)
3. Lateral knee pain, by the ITB (outside the knee)
4. Pain behind or below the knee cap
5. Ankle sprains
6. Pain under the arch of the foot
7. Pulled/strained muscles in the lower limb
If you are concerned about any of the above there is still plenty of time to come into the clinic and see a member of our team to get promptly assessed and treated before Sunday. If you are feeling injury free and all set why not treat yourself to a sports massage this week to help with getting those legs fresh for the day.
If you wish to make an appointment for any of our services please contact the clinic on 0161 445 5133 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good luck to everyone running on Sunday from all the staff at G4
