As human beings we are designed to run, and yet so many of us can’t without developing injury upon injury. What’s going on?
Remember, running is not the problem, but rather the body we bring to the running!
If your posture is out of alignment to start off with, then when you go running you might put extra stress on certain areas. Over time this can lead to a condition such as a muscle strain, cartilage loss, tendonitis etc.
Treatments which just focus on the condition rarely help in the long-term and so usually the pain returns.
The key is getting your body back into it’s natural postural alignment.
In this video, Pete Egoscue, Posture Correction Specialist and founder of The Egoscue Method, shows you some simple exercises you can do before you go on a run.

I hope you find this useful and get in touch if you have any questions.
