The Runner's Clinic

Runners have a natural enemy – themselves. Since the running boom of the 1970’s, the number of injuries in this demanding sport have multiplied. Experts estimate that more than 70% of all runners will experience an injury severe enough to require at least one week’s abstinence from running during the course of their running careers. Just as running is a special type of sport activity, so running injuries require a specialized expertise.
