Top tip to avoid a Two Oceans injury
All the best to our Two oceans runners!
The most common injuries we see after this race are lateral or outer foot, knee and hip injuries: ITB at the hip & knee and peroneal tendonitis along the outer foot and calf.
Our top tip for the race:
Run on the flat or middle section of the road. Southern cross drive in particular has a very steep camber or angle. This causes the muscles on one leg to work in a shortened position while the other leg muscles work in a lengthened position thus causing muscle imbalances and overuse injuries.
Prevention is better than cure. But if you do find yourself with a foot, knee or hip sports injury after the race we can certainly get you back on track in a couple of sessions. Whether its hands-on treatment you need: soft tissue mobilization, dry needling, massage, joint mobilization or strapping. Or rehabilitation for a chronic injury. We are at the ready to help fix you!
