Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Running Injuries

Running injuries often present with pain, swelling, weakness, or stiffness in the foot, ankle, or lower leg. You might also experience changes in your gait or difficulty pushing off with your toes.
Don’t wait for the pain to become unbearable! See a podiatrist if your pain persists for more than a few days, interferes with your running form, or worsens with activity. Early diagnosis and intervention are key for a faster recovery.
Recovery time varies depending on the severity of the injury. However, a podiatrist can create a personalised treatment plan to optimise healing and get you back on track as quickly as possible.
Absolutely! Podiatrists can assess your biomechanics, running form, and footwear to identify potential weaknesses that could lead to injury. They can then recommend strategies like orthotics, strengthening exercises, running technique changes and proper shoe selection to keep you running strong.
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) are essential for initial injury management. Depending on the injury, a podiatrist might also suggest specific stretches or exercises to promote healing. Remember, self-diagnosis can be risky. Consulting a podiatrist ensures you’re taking the right steps towards recovery.
