Many common lower limb injuries could be avoided

Research has shown that more than half (54%) of sports related injuries refer to the lower extremities.

Just about anyone who is regularly active will be familiar with or know someone who has suffered with runner's knee, shin splints, foot and ankle pain.

Whilst these injuries may often stem from a complex chain, or from trauma, many common "over-use" injuries of the lower limbs are predictable and could be avoided.

In the video above, Stuart Hinds describes the most common causes, and the best ways to keep your lower limbs in good shape!

 

Stuart is internationally recognized for his trigger point work with Australian Olympic athletes (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012), is a regularly lecturer at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia, and has been an NAT presenter since 2011. 

Stuart was recently awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the AAMT.
