Business name for sports injury prevention and rehabilition centre?
I’m looking for ideas on a catchy business name and slogan for a company that I am setting up. It is going to be based in West Yorkshire. I’ve seen a lot of companies now that have boring names but I want something that will appeal to all ages and abilities.
My company will specialize in distance running, injury prevention, training advice, diagnosing running injuries and providing treatments. Sports Massage and Sports Therapy is available going to be available over the coming years.
Any suggestions will be welcome
What is the best type of running sneaker for prevention against injury?
I loved my Nike Air Max 360 but they no longer sell them. The Nike Air Max 2009 looks good but don’t know how good they are. What is the best one to buy?
The best running shoes are the ones that fit YOUR feet and not my feet. This might sound obvious however many people will look at the brand and model (and looks) and make a decision before they even see if the shoe fits. This includes asking people for advice on running shoes – decision made before they see the trainers. (As an aside – would you buy a house or a car without seeing it?).
Everyone runs in a slightly different way, and are built slightly differently so this means that what fits me well won’t necessarily fit you. Most shoe manufacturers make their shoes to a different ‘last’ or former for the shoe – and that means that each make is slightly differently sized.
So really you have to go to a running shop and try a few pairs on from different manufacturers and see which one fits you well. Get the help of the assistant in the shop (it is what they are there for and if they serve you well then you have a good chance of getting your next pair there – good service really does count).
All the top brands will last you well, approximately 500 miles of running which sounds a lot but it is really three, 3 mile runs a week for a year. I would change my shoes every year (normally in January when the sales are on!!).
Running knee injury prevention?
I’ve been out running three times in the last week, for about 2 or 2.5 miles each time, after the 2nd run my knees hurt a bit but went out again yesterday and had to stop running because my knees were really hurting and they still ache today, its worse in my right knee tho.
Is it because of my trainers? Is there anything I can do to stop the aching? And what sort of warm up’s can i do to help prevent it.
Thanks for any help, i don’t want to give up running because i’ve been starting to enjoy it.
How do you find out if you have flat feet?
It sounds like your shoes are getting old.. I can always tell when I need a new pair of shoes because my knees start telling me about it..
running injury help and prevention?
Last night I did a 3.5 mile run over road and single track up some steep climbs and downhills. I felt a slight twinge in my right foot and today im in a bit of discomfort.
I seem to have pulled the muscle/tendon on the outside of my right foot between the heel and the ball of the foot.
My questions are these: what have i done?
How can I recover?
How can I stop reoccurrence of this sort of injury?
Do I need special insoles/trainers?
Thanks in advance
Immediately I would recommend that you don’t go running for a few days. You might have just pulled a muscle in your foot – hope so – and the rest gives it chance to recover. Keep running and the damage can get worse and eventually you can damage the tendons and that’s bad.
So rest for a few days. Next time you go out, go out for an easy run – 2 miles at the most, along flat roads (the easiest on your body). If you feel your foot twinge again during your run then stop and walk home, and have another couple of days rest. It will be fustrating but better that way than 6 months to a year off and needing an opertaion to get going again.
After your run and your feet are OK then you can slowly start to build the distance again – do another 2 mile run and then do 2 2 /12 mile runs then 2 3 1/2 mile runs and then you can start to work on hills.Assuming of course that in all these runs your foot is OK. If not, stop, rest and start again.
Running Injury Comming Back?
Im a high school runner decently fast I run a 4:50 mile and 16:20 5k but about 2 months ago beginning of the season I had an Injury and I stopped running for a while. This is my first year ever running my injuries were shin splint a tissue strain and tendonitits. I just started running this a little while ago Im mostly fine when I start I run a little funny but as I warm up I look fine. I ran about 32 miles from monday to friday I woke up today and my ankle and shin splints hurt a little but not excruciating. I ice after I run usually and I soak in hot water. Im not running today but I really need to be able to run I know by tommorrow the pain will be gone and I’ll probably run on monday. Are these waring signs to pull down my milege or stay the same what are some tips also for my gait I think I learned to favor one leg and how do I unlearn that. Also Im starting to have lower ankle pain I’ve had a problem with my high ankle the tissue strain was a high ankle strain any rehab advice for that i have decent orthodics should I be tapping my ankle? Any advice for getting faster getting back into running and injury prevention would be greatly appreciated.
The injuries you had are commonly seen when you train too much for your body to handle. It happens to pretty much everybody when they first start running because you don’t know where your limits are and you figure more training will lead to better results.
If you aren’t competing or planning on competing until cross country I would definitely take it easy and get completely well before doing running more than half an hour every other day at a jogging pace. If you are favor a leg either because of pain or muscle imbalance. If it is because of pain then continued running can lead to an injury and it can’t be helping you run faster. You unlearn it by running pain free and consciously focus on your normal gait, you should be taking 160 steps a minute. This could be the cause of the high ankle tissue strain. These are called compensation injuries because you get them compensating. Your gait changes because of shin splint pain or a tissue strain or tendinitis and because of that change joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments,, etc. That have never had to bare, that weren’t meant to bare the strain of running, have to. And they may not be up to it. The single greatest cause of improvement is remaining injury-free while maintaining consistent training. Good luck!
