Pain When Running? CURE!

Pain When Running? CURE!

I see many athletes in my clinic, especially runners, tri-athletes and many more. This same problem comes up time and time again.


If you only have pain when you run and no other time, there’s a good chance your feet are not aligned correctly.

The most basic way to find out is to go to a sports shop such as DW sports in Londonderry or Intersport in Coleraine where they do Gait analysis. They will watch how you run on a treadmill and get you the correct style of shoes or insoles to suit your feet.

You can go a step further and go to a Podiatrist who specialises in insoles. They will measure you up for custom insoles so the alignment is perfect. The cost could be anywhere between £350 and £500 with the insoles and the assessment.

Once the feet are correct, everything else usually falls into place.
