Specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Most running injuries occur due to 3 factors: equipment, environment, and error in training. First make sure you have an appropriate running shoe (equipment). Replace shoes after 400 miles. Watch your training surface (environment). Running on slanted surface, concrete, or track can increase risk of injury. Finally, error in training is the biggest factor. Do not increase mileage >10% per week.
