Specialist Physiotherapy Treatments For Runners

Running is your passion. Whether training for your next marathon or lace up your shoes for some stress-relief – nothing beats that feeling of flying across the pavement.

But running injuries happen. Shin splints, runner’s knee, IT band syndrome. The list goes on.

The thought of not being able to run can be devastating. But you don’t have to give up what you love. Our running physiotherapists can help you recover from injury and get back to peak performance.

Customised Treatment For Running Injuries

At Bounty Physio, our running physios take a comprehensive approach to diagnose and treat running injuries in runners of all levels. We start with a detailed assessment to pinpoint the root cause of your pain, including:

  • Biomechanical evaluation – analysing your gait, alignment, foot mechanics
  • Strength and flexibility testing – identifying muscle imbalances or restrictions
  • Movement screening – assessing form, control and technique

Using these findings, we create a tailored treatment plan to resolve your specific injury. This includes:

  • Hands-on techniques like massage, joint mobilisations to improve tissue mobility
  • Targeted stretching and foam rolling to address muscle tightness
  • Corrective exercises to strengthen weak areas and correct muscle firing patterns
  • Proprioceptive exercises to enhance joint position sense and control
  • Running gait re-training using video and feedback tools
  • Gradual return to running program based on your goals
  • We also analyse your training regimen, mileage, footwear and terrain. Recommendations are provided to help modify these factors to prevent future running injuries.

Throughout rehabilitation, we can collaborate with coaches, trainers and other members of your support team where required, to optimise your recovery and performance.

Common Running Injuries We Treat

Some frequent running injuries we successfully treat include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis – Heel and arch pain from inflammation of the plantar fascia. Treatment focuses on tissue healing, arch support, stretching and strengthening.
  • Achilles Tendonitis – Pain and swelling in the Achilles tendon from overuse. Physio helps reduce tendon irritation, improve flexibility and control forces through the ankle.
  • Shin Splints – Pain along the shin bone from repetitive impact. Running analysis, improving foot biomechanics, and building lower leg strength alleviates symptoms.
  • Runner’s Knee – Generalised knee pain, especially around the kneecap. Physiotherapy aims to improve tracking and glide of the kneecap and strengthen thigh and hip stabilisers.
  • IT Band Syndrome – Lateral knee pain from tightness and friction of the iliotibial band. Treatment includes release techniques, massage, and hip/glute strengthening.
  • Hip Bursitis – Inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint. Physio restores hip mobility and pelvic control to settle hip bursitis.
  • Hamstring Strain – Stretch or tear of the hamstring muscles. Therapeutic exercises enhance flexibility, eccentric strength and remodel scar tissue to prevent re-injury.
  • Stress Fracture – Tiny cracks or fissures in the weight-bearing bones from repetitive impact. Management aims to allow bone healing while maintaining fitness.
