According to American Sports Data, running accounts for over 1.5 million injuries annually. Through the course of one's running career, 50 to 70% of runners are likely to sustain at least one running-related injury. Due to the repetitive nature of the sport and the compressive joint loads sustained while running (from 5-10 times body weight), overuse injuries affecting the knee, ankle and foot, and hip are the most common. Establishing adequate muscular balance and proper running mechanics will reduce risk of injury and lengthen your running career.
