Prevent the most common injuries in runners with sports medicine treatments

Sports medicine has become one of the most in-demand branches of health tourism. Along with medical-therapeutic and aesthetic treatments and wellness experiences, tourists who choose to travel to heal also do so to treat or prevent sports injuries, or simply to improve their performance. And in this case, it is not only a discipline reserved for elite athletes, but there are also amateur sportsmen and women who require these services.

What is sports medicine?

Physical exercise has a great impact on the whole body, both at the cardiovascular level and on the skeletal system, metabolism and general health. Sports medicine studies all the effects that sport has on people and how it helps to maintain a good state of health. Sports medical treatments, on the other hand, are aimed at treating and preventing conditions and injuries resulting from sport.

Treatments for professional and amateur runners

One of the most common injuries in the world of sports medicine is the sprained ankle. It occurs mainly in impact sports when they are performed on uneven surfaces such as mountains or hard surfaces such as asphalt.
With the arrival of the good weather, many people are encouraged to do physical exercise outdoors. One of the most common is to go jogging in the city or in the mountains. If you also belong to this group, in this article we would like to tell you about the biomechanical foot study to prevent running injuries provided by one of our partners. A treatment suitable for both amateur and professional runners, which will help you to avoid injuries derived from this sport. It will also help you to improve your running technique and thus facilitate optimal and prolonged performance over time.

Benefits of the “Runner’s Study Prevention” programme:

Thanks to this treatment you will be able to avoid the most common injuries associated with the locomotor system, including problems in feet, knees and hips. Through the biomechanical analysis carried out in Andorra, the specialists will be able to identify possible deviations in your stride, evaluate how your lower limbs work and suggest the most suitable footwear according to your specific needs.
Many runners, both beginners and experienced runners, often do not consider that their running technique may be inappropriate, or even that they may have an abnormality in their feet or stride. This can lead to significant injuries in a short period of time.
Given the increase in running-related injuries, specialists advise both amateur and professional runners to undergo a foot or gait analysis.

Biomechanics analysis

This is a treatment that provides a complete study of your foot that will allow you to improve your technique and prevent injuries in both walking and running. To determine which factors need to be improved, it includes an analysis of actual training, the application of exclusive technology and the design of customised insoles based on 3D scanning. Before the final delivery, the footwear is tested and adapted to fit the foot of the walker. It lasts between one or two days and is carried out at our partner’s clinic in Andorra, located in the centre of Escaldes Engordany. It also includes three annual check-ups to adjust or repeat the treatment.
If you have started running or you already consider yourself a keen runner, don’t forget about the health of your feet and book the complete biomechanics study, which apart from preventing injuries, will help you to perfect your running technique.
