Running

Hamstrings or calf muscles that are too tight?  Achilles tendon or plantar fascia pain?  Can't roll out that IT band tightness no matter how hard you try?!  

Running is a great way to stay fit and relieve stress but it can also create physical strain on your body, bringing weak muscles and joint imbalances to the forefront. 

Sitting at your desk all day tightens your hip flexors while weakening your core and buttock muscles. This impacts how your legs and feet can absorb the load when running. 

26 bones, 33 joints, 112 ligaments, and that is just in our feet!  Throw in knees and hips and low backs and oh my!   From your core down to your toes, there’s a lot going on with every step.  

Strong core and buttock muscles are important in the prevention of lower body injuries. Visit our Video Exercise Library and give the Glute Bridge and McGill Abs a try.

Feeling the strain of training? Want specific exercises tailored to your running regime?  


Chiropractors are experts at assessing and keeping your spine and pelvis loading optimally, as well as ensuring that your hips, knees and feet are all up to the task.
