THE HIPS DON’T LIE

Runner's World (UK) - - Injury -

Look­ing to avoid a range of run­ning in­juries? Keep your hips high and level. A re­cent study1 found that side-to-side pelvis drop was the biome­chan­i­cal pat­tern most likely to lead to a lengthy spell on the side­lines. It was as­so­ci­ated with in­juries such as ITB syn­drome, knee pain and Achilles tendinopa­thy. Char­tered phys­io­ther­a­pist Chris Bra mah( run­ning­per­for­mance­clinic.com) says a 10 per cent in­crease in your ca­dence will help keep you on the level. ‘You can also use a mir­ror to self-mon­i­tor your hip po­si­tion while run­ning on a tread­mill, aim­ing to keep your hips high and level,’ he adds.
