  5. Hello, I am a chiropractor and I thought I'll share my two cents with you. 1) If you are new to running regularly 3-4x/week for the past few months, it might be a case of inadequate load management i.e. too much too soon. Without more details, it's hard to comment. The general rule of thumb is your current week mileage shouldn't be 60% more than the average of the past four four weeks. 2) There's no mention of if you currently do other workout or if you were physically active before you started running. If you don't do any form of cross training, it might be good time to start. 100% recommend strength training. It reduces your risk of injury by almost 70%. 3) If you are not sure of what to do, the best thing is seek professional advice. If you are reading advice off forums and the internet, we highly suggest that you do a thorough fact checking Lots of information being shared online are not evidence-based! We did blog a while ago on how to prevent running injuries and also nine running truths every runner should know. We included references in our blog for easier fact checking. If you need more help, reach out to us directly.
  6. p.s. we are opening to doing a running injury workshop for this forum specifically if there is enough interest!

  9. So this paper just came out earlier this month: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1521694219300233 It is still in press and also behind a paywall but we have summarised all the findings in our latest blog entry for those interested - 9 High Value Tips For Your Tendon Pain: From A Chiropractor's Perspective Tendinopathy affects runners from the more common Achilles tendon to patella tendon, and even glut/hamstring tendinopathy. Reach out to us if you've any questions about the article
  10. So this was just published under a year ago and it followed runners across two years. The full text of the paper is behind a paywall but we posted a summary of it on our blog at https://squareone.com.sg/resources/running-injuries-separating-truths-from-marketing-fluff/ I highly highly recommend all runners to look into it because there are quite a bit of surprises in there!
  11. I wouldn't say needlessly but we do get people who come to us while seeing a sports doc or people who come to us after seeing a sports doc. At the end of the day, a good/ethical doctor will always advocate for conservative care first. At this point in time, research/evidence highly points towards exercise intervention. Of course recovery will also include load management, return to sport type programming!
  12. Try intrinsic foot muscle exercises. If you do a google, a few of them will show up. We haven't really written anything specific to plantar fasciitis but check out our latest blog entry Nine High Value Tips for your Tendon Pain (references are all included). The same concepts will apply to you :) Let me know if you've any questions.
  13. You don't have to go straight to a sports doctor. You can try a sports physiotherapist or a sports chiropractor first. You would one some one who is trained with athletic injuries with a focus to get you back to sports. This will involve rehabilitation and strength-training! You'd probably find this post interesting: Surprising Lessons From Watching The World's Best Runners. I practise as a sports chiropractor in clarke quay - my details on my profile. If you prefer a physio, I can get you in touch with some one at UFIT who would be suitable for you. As far as sports doctor goes, most of my patients see Dr. Cormac O Muircheartaigh from The Sports Medicine Lab.
