Get Relief From Achilles Tendinitis Before the Achilles St. Patrick’s Day Run By Visiting a Running Injury Clinic

You don‘t need to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick‘s Day! And what better way to celebrate than participating in the Achilles St. Patrick‘s Day Run in support of the Huntington Society of Canada? This run raises money to help fund research and services for Huntington‘s disease. You and your running shoes and stretching routine still have time to be ready for the March 17th event. Whether you’re an avid runner, or just run to keep fit, this fundraiser is a great opportunity to enjoy running in a social setting for a great cause.

This event also signals the beginning of what is, for many, the start of running season. As spring unfolds, and the snow begins to melt, it’s almost an innate cue to dust of the running gear! This spring event is a great motivator for beginning to enjoy the benefits of this season’s regular running routine.

But if you suffer from a common running injury like Achilles tendinitis you know that the joy of running is replaced by agony Рif not total avoidance of the sport. Achilles tendinitis is a common and painful running injury that comes from an overly stressed Achilles tendon. This causes the muscles in the knee to tighten, which then irritates the Achilles tendon. This domino-effect ruins any chances for a relaxing run around the track or neighbourhood…

So what can you do if you suffer from Achilles tendinitis? First of all, whatever you do, don‘t just ignore it and try to run through the pain – chances are not only will this affliction not heal on its own but you can easily make the situation worse. Instead, visit a Toronto sports medicine clinic to get the advice and attention you need to return to a pain-free status.

How can a sports medicine clinic help you bounce back from a running injury like Achilles tendinitis? A sports medicine clinic offers a number of different treatment options: including custom knee braces, custom orthotics and physical therapy, just to name a few. There are several great treatment options a sports medicine clinic will carry in their arsenal.

If you suffer from Achilles tendinitis or any other running related injury, don‘t accept being kept off your feet and not enjoying your regular run. Attend a sports medicine clinic and speak to an experienced sport injury professional about the various treatment options that can nurse you back to conditioning in time for the St. Patrick‘s Day run!
