Why Does It Hurt When I Run?

Still hurting from your last run? Here are the 5 most common running injuries and how to treat them.

Runner leg and muscle pain during running training outdoors in summer nature. Health and fitness concept

Running is one of the easiest sport to pick up, but it is also one of the easiest sport to develop an injury. Injuries often occur due to overexertion and incorrect running technique. When you run, you can take up to 200 strides per minute. Each stride sends a forceful energy through your feet, ankles, shins, calves and knees, which can cause tremendous strain on the muscles and bone.

  1. Runner’s Knee

The cartilage under your kneecap can wear down after constant intense running over a prolonged period of time. This causes pain and discomfort around the knees, especially when going up and down stairs, squatting and sitting with the knees bent for a long time.

– Tape the knee
– Use a knee brace
– Take inflammatory medication
– Rest your body and reduce the intensity of your runs


  1. Stress Fractures

Overexertion and constant strain can result in a small crack in the bone that may worsen if left untreated. This is because the bone needs sufficient time to recover and repair itself after an intensive activity.

Stress fractures usually occur when runners increase the intensity, frequency, or duration of their runs too soon without enough rest in between.

– Stop running completely for at least 8 to 16 weeks, depending on the severity of the fracture.
– Consult a doctor.
– Switch to swimming or pool running to build strength.


  1. Achilles tendinitis

A sudden increase in training intensity can lead to an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the thick band of tissue that connects the calf muscles to the back of the heel. Runners with tight or weak calves are especially prone to Achilles tendinitis and should thus work on loosening and building strength in their calves.

– Rest, ice, and stretch the calf muscles can relieve the pain temporarily.
– Shoe aids such as heel lifts and highly structured shoes can help lessen the strain on the Achilles tendon.
– Regular exercise to strengthen and stretch the lower legs.


  1. Muscle Damage

Muscle damage includes muscle strains, pulls, and tears. This is often caused by insufficient f and improper warm up of the muscles, making it prone to injury. The most commonly pulled muscles during running are the hamstrings, quadriceps, calf, and groin.

– Rest the muscle
– Ice the affected area
– Compression
– Elevation


  1. Shin Splints

Occurs when the shin bone and/or the connective tissues along the shin is damaged and causes sharp or aching pain when running.The constant impact of the feet on the ground may cause small tears in the muscles around the shin bone.

Shin splints most commonly affect runners with high arches or flat feet, and new or returning runners who overexert themselves.

– Reduce the intensity of your runs.
– Rest
– Ice your shins
– Wearing an ankle brace can speed recovery and help stabilize the ankle to reduce the strain on the shin muscles.


While there are a variety of treatment available for each injury, the key is to give your body sufficient rest and to know your limits to prevent overexertion.

The Daily mail has one of the largest readership base in the United Kingdom and we are still ecstatic to be given a mention!

This article published on 30 May also features other intriguing innovations that make getting fit less daunting and is definitely a must-read if you are ready for a peek of what the future of sports technology holds.

As seen in the article, we had the opportunity to work with Mary Ngiam, a professional tennis player and coach who has competed on both the national and international level in her career so far.

Representing her country during the World Junior Tennis Competition in 2002 and boasting more than five years of coaching experience, it was great to see Mary Ngiam using our QLIPP Ultimate Tennis Performance Sensor.

In other news, we are also delighted to have the unwavering support of Sarah Pang, Singapore’s top tennis player. During a recent feature in The Straits Times, Singapore’s most read newspaper, it was revealed that she has been keeping the sensor close by her side.

For those of you who recall, Sarah Pang is also the star of our first demonstration video:

We would like to give our heartfelt congratulations to Sarah Pang  for being the only Singaporean to enter the WTA professional  circuit and also wish her all the best for the upcoming SEA Games 2015.
