#21 Should I Worry About Pain When Running After My Injury Heals?

One of the biggest concerns of injured athletes returning to activity is whether or not they should be concerned about pain when they start to run. This is a great question and certainly a valid concern.

Pain is your body’s indicator that something is not right. But you have to figure out which pain is acceptable and which pain is unacceptable.

Let’s face it most doctors would say pain is abnormal and unacceptable. But what about when you run? What about during your mile repeats, hill repeats or long runs.

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I have pain during every one of my hard workouts, especially if I’m doing them correctly.

#19 Myths About X-Rays And Running Injuries

Every day I get calls from injured runners. Whether their foot is aching when they run and they think they have a stress fracture or if they twisted an ankle on a trail, the number one question I get is, “should I get an x-ray?”

Whether or not you need an x-ray depends upon several things. Granted, most of the time when you go to the doctor if you have a foot or ankle injury they will do x-rays to “make sure that nothing is broken.”

But x-rays don’t always tell the whole story. And there’s also a widespread misconception that if an x-ray doesn’t show anything then you need an MRI or Ultrasound to figure out what is going on with your foot.

Today we’re talking about what you can and can’t see on an x-ray when you have a running injury.

#18 Which Running Surface Is The Hardest On Your Feet?

In episode #17 of the Doc On The Run Podcast we talked about how you can choose a running surface that will decrease the stress and strain on your foot.

Mainly we were talking about how running uphill or downhill or along a side slope can be used to your advantage to either deliberately increase or decrease the stress to your foot and perhaps even an injured structure.


#17 Choose A Running Surface To Heal Faster, Run Longer And Heal Running Injuries

If you are a runner with an injury that affects one side of your foot more than another, like plantar fasciitis, picking the right running surface can make the difference between being able to run and still heal, or running and making your plantar fasciitis much worse.

San Francisco running expert, podiatrist and Ironman triathlete Dr. Christopher Segler explains how to pick the right surfaces to decrease the stress on your plantar fascia when you run with heel pain.



#16 Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Runners Heal Faster?

#11 Why Runners Have An Unfair Advantage When It Comes To Healing An Injury

To most runners an over-training injury is their worst nightmare. The reason that these injuries are so terrible to most runners is that they happen at the worst possible time. This often happens 4 to 6 weeks out from your race.

So just as you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel, just when you start dreaming of your taper, disaster strikes. You get injured.

But all is not despair.

Today we are talking about why runners have an unfair advantage when it comes to healing an injury, and how those advantages can help you recover faster than the average non-runner.

#10 Fracture Walking Boot: One Of The Worst Treatments For A Runner

Fracture walking boots are one of the most often prescribed treatments for running injuries such as stress fractures and tendinitis.

But runners have a much higher price to pay for immobilization.

In this episode we are going to explain why fracture walking boots are one of the worst treatments possible for an injured runner.



#9 A Runner’s Mind On Plantar Fasciitis, Running Form And Shoe Selection

#4 Should Runners Use NSAIDs When They Have Plantar Fasciitis?

Many runners take it and even call it “Vitamin-I.”

If inflammation is part of the problem, why not take ANTI-inflammatory drugs?

Learn why, when and how runner’s use anti-inflammatory medications to get relief…and perhaps even more importantly, when runners should NOT take these drugs.

#3 Can Home Treatment Heal Runner’s Heel Pain?

Did you know that in the overwhelming majority of cases doctors will recommend that you perform simple home treatments before they prescribe medications or consider more invasive procedures like injections or surgery?

When you need to fast-track the recovery process, it always helps to try some simple treatments at home before you see the doctor.

This podcast explains how doctors (or even a runner who hasn’t been to the doctor) can treat heel pain with simple treatments that can be performed at home without ever seeing a doctor.

#2 Why Some Runners With Plantar Fasciitis Never Get Better

Plantar fasciitis may be the most common cause of runner’s heel pain, but it is not the only cause.
