If you are looking to get yourself a new pair of runners for the new year, then check out www.runningfit.com.au. Running Fit are located in the heart of the Melbourne City CBD 3000 at 170 Queens St, Melbourne City CBD 3000. They specialise in fitting you with the correct pair of running shoes. I recently had one of their employees attend the clinic to explain how they differ to other shoe shops in the city. They offer clients a gait assessment and will prescribe the shoe that best suit their foot structure. Running Fit also offer twice weekly training runs.
For those individuals who run or jog for exercise, it is recommended that you look at replacing your running shoes every 700 – 800km. Incorrectly prescribed running shoes, poor fitting or worn out shoes can increase the stress and strain on your feet and further up the body. Common running injuries treated at Principle Four Osteopathy include plantarfasciitis, achilles tendonitis, calf strains/tears, patellar femoral tracking issues, patellar tendonitis, iliotibial band friction/overuse injuries, hamstring strains and many more. If you currently suffer from any of these running related injuries or regularly run for exercise, then have your feet assessed for new shoes and see the osteopath for a general check over.
