If you're a runner, you know how important it is to stay injury-free. Sure, running has a lot of benefits, but the moment your quadriceps cramp up in agony or your calves seize up because of an overly ambitious run can be demoralizing, to say the least. Here are seven things to keep in mind if you want to prevent painful injuries during your runs. 1. Warm up thoroughly before each run
Hello, my name is Liam and I live in Alice Springs, Australia. I work pretty hard every day out on my farm, so it isn't unusual for me to have aches and pains. I hate going to the doctor so I normally pop a couple of painkillers or open a cold beer to deal with the discomfort. However, my wife kept on nagging me to see a doctor, which I eventually did. The doctor at Fidelity Health Choice discovered that I had a rare infection which was causing the pain. After a course of drugs, I fully recovered. I now attend regular appointments. I hope you enjoy my health and wellbeing blog.
