At Warwick Sport Physiotherapy clinic, we see runners coming through every week. Injuries we typically see and treat include knee pain, back pain, ankle sprains and muscular injuries.

Commonly during physiotherapy assessments, we find imbalances in muscular and soft tissue structures. In runners, some of these key findings can include, weakness in the core and gluteal muscles and tightness in the hip flexors, glutes and hamstrings. 

Maintaining good flexibility in your legs and a strong core and glutes can help reduce your chances of injury when running regularly. It can also help to enhance your running too, with the potential to make you quicker. 

This 20-minute flow will work predominately on: 

1. Core stability 

2. Glute activation 

3. Mobility/flexibility

All exercises are completed at your own risk. If you have other health problems, please seek medical advice from your GP prior to participating. If you are using the information provided in this article, please read the terms & conditions.
