Running Repairs is a handbook for everyone who runs – from

those training for a one-off charity event, through those who run to

keep fit to experienced club runners who regularly race.

A recent Runner’s World magazine survey revealed that over

80 per cent of runners have experienced an injury and that avoiding

injury or recovering from injury is the main worry for nearly every

runner. This will be the first book to specifically address these

concerns. Written by an experienced physiotherapist and recreational

marathon runner, Running Repairs is written in two parts:

Part one – covers a

series of strengthening and flexibility exercises designed to be

incorporated within any running schedule, designed to help prevent

injury in the first place.

Part two – covers the

most common running injuries and how to manage them. A series of

flowcharts helps the reader to diagnose the most likely cause of any

ache and pain and recommends a plan of action to aid recovery – from

rest and ice to referral to a physiotherapist. The book also

covers basic biomechanics so that runners can understand their running

style and identify the specific injuries that are associated with that

style, plus nutritional advice for recovering from injury. The book

will be an essential reference for all runners – allowing them to treat

any injuries immediately and in many cases saving considerable amounts

of money on unnecessary physiotherapy appointments (the author

estimates that about 50% of injuries that runners visit her practice

with could be treated effectively by the patient and that the vast

majority of injuries could be avoided with appropriate exercises being

incorporated as part of training).
