Would you want to hear a shocking fact I just discovered in the New York Times? In our country, ankle injuries occur to over 28,000 individuals every day. And the majority of them do it while exercising, whether it be running or other sports. This indicates that sprained ankles are the most prevalent sports injury in the United States.
As a runner, you are likely to have an injury at some point throughout your lifetime. That’s because running puts a lot of stress on your body. Of course, the issue is not with the running. It’s more about your movements and training frequency. This is particularly true in the case of chronic injuries (problems that build up over time. These are not the same with acute injuries. They happen because of a specific incident, like tripping over a branch and spraining your ankle.)
Today, we’re going to discuss the cuboid bone, which runners should be aware of. Everyone is aware that runners’ feet experience frequent damage. The amount of miles we log may have an impact on the health of our feet, and when they begin to suffer, it can be difficult to make them feel better (especially if we are guilty of pushing through the pain). Running may harm your foot in a variety of ways, such as straining your plantar fascia and experiencing heel pain. You could take a funny stride andtwist your ankle. And repeated contact on the same spot might cause a stress fracture.
We are all aware of how often runners get injured. There are a few useful strategies to lessen the discomfort associated with this activity. This includes studies that support the idea that keeping to a program might keep you running more comfortably. And even research that suggests one unconventional strategy that may reduce your chance of running injuries by up to 39%!
Running enthusiasts should cross-train. It may help you avoid injuries by strengthening the muscles that sustain your runs. Moreover, it may also assist you in training while you recover if you do get a running injury.
Unfortunately, physical activity may bring on acute injuries as well as chronic pain. This is especially true because I've seen exercise have a negative impact on my body over the years. I've dealt with heel pain and a variety of other issues that bring people into my clinic on a regular basis. And it seems that we are not the only ones who are affected by this.
