Running In The Auckland Marathon 2014

Physiotherapy in Grey Lynn/Ponsonby to keep you free from running injuries.

So you want to run the 2014 Auckland Half Marathon? Would you like to run it well? or just get to the start line after all the winter training and long runs to get your feet used to the idea of running 21.1 km nonstop!

Physiotherapy in Grey Lynn/Ponsonby can help you not only run, run faster, more upright and with improved ease.

As experienced Physiotherapists we see on a daily level what happens to our bodies with repetitive exercise, especially running and cycling.  Some people don’t have the time or don’t make time to stretch post running.  Rush to work and sit down for 8 hours more or less.  Over months, muscles develop tightness and develop trigger points.  One small trigger point can provide the runner with pain that stops them in their tracks.

To avoid runner’s injuries, keeping strong at your gluteals and core abdominals, plus utilizing massage at Bodyreform, we know you will run well with less pain and improved flexibility and time.

Physio’s at Auckland’s Bodyreform who massage runners and cyclists also work on the gluteal and ITB trigger points that normally refer significant pain down the legs.

Best to avoid running problems rather than pick up the pieces after months. Physio’s in Grey Lynn recommend month massage for runners-up to 2 weeks prior the event.  If you are especially tight, massages 2 weekly with some clinical pilates thrown in the increase your flexibility and strength.

So, get your shoes out of the cupboard, plan your runs and work on the balancing act of massage, pelvic strength, and trigger points to get you to the start line.
