If you love to run, it’s quite likely that you run a lot. With this comes the increased risk of injury. Some injuries will occur because of the mileage you clock up, the shoes you wear or from muscle imbalances and poor alignment. Trail runners face the added challenges of uneven surfaces and sometimes even slippery surfaces.
When dealing with any acute injury it’s a good idea to apply the RICE method – Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. If things don’t settle down quickly then you should get to a physiotherapist. If you think you need an Xray it’s best to visit your doctor too.
