Running is one of the most popular exercises because it provides you with overall improved fitness. However, there are times when an injury can prevent you from running or from getting the most out of your exercise program. You don’t want to be sidelined for very long. At Calgary Core Physiotherapy, we offer a helpful running injury program. Whether you are training for a marathon or simply enjoy a regular run, our program will get you back on the road again.
What is the Calgary Running Injury Program?
Our Calgary running injury program incorporates a variety of treatment methods to improve mobility, reduce pain, and encourage healing. Everyone’s injury is different, so we take a unique approach to your treatment plan. We customize the treatments to your specific needs. Some of our techniques include manual therapy, Class IV laser treatment, exercises, and more. We may also incorporate regenerative medicine services such as prolotherapy or platelet-rich plasma injections. We use a team approach to your treatment program. We are happy to collaborate with your existing doctors, personal trainers, coaches, and other professionals to create a plan that is ideal for your condition.
An accurate diagnosis leads to the best possible treatment plan. Our physiotherapists have the training and experience to diagnose your Calgary running injury. We believe that the correct diagnosis will significantly improve your ability to heal and will get you through the injury more quickly and with less pain. Repetitive movements often cause running injuries. It is essential to get to the root cause of your pain before we treat the condition. We test your muscles, ligaments, joints, and nerves to determine the cause of your pain. We will utilize x-rays, ultrasound, and MRI when needed. We will explain your injury, so you have a complete understanding of the condition.
What is Goal-Guided Treatment?
Our goal is to provide you with a treatment plan that will help you heal so you can get back to what you love to do. With that in mind, we offer you a run-walk program that is effective in getting you to return to running without pain. Our physiotherapist will work with you to create a unique plan based on your specific injury. Our schedule will give you run/walk cycles that you can use to increase your run time gradually. Once you can complete the cycle without pain, you can increase to the next level. This method is ideal for helping you reach your goals, yet ensures that you don’t progress more quickly than your injury allows.
