Sort workout pains with these fixes from React Physical Therapy founder David Reavy.
Shin splints Zinging shins ruin a run, so land mid-foot. Next, hold a tennis ball and press on the front of the legs; start just above the most tender area and slowly move your leg up and down, then side to side.
Heel and foot pain This foot ache during the push-off is caused by weak glutes and hamstrings and exacerbated by tight calves. Relieve it by applying a ball, or your hands, to arches and calves to lengthen tendons.
Runner’s knee This irritation under the knee is often due to weak stabilising muscles, like quads, glutes and core. Strengthen them with squats and bridges or, if you’re strong, try a supported headstand.
