  • MAJORITY OF RUNNING INJURIES ARE CAUSED BY OVERUSE STATES NEW YORK PODIATRIST

 

Dr. John Connors, who has run almost 20 marathons of his own, addressed a crowd of about 80 cross country and track athletes in the Southern Regional High School auditorium. Connors gave the students an hour-long PowerPoint presentation titled “Running Injuries – Diagnosis, Treatment & Prevention.” At times he slipped into heavy medical nomenclature, talking about things such as patellofermoral pain and femoral neck stress fractures. But much of his talk addressed running injuries in clear and simple language that both the Southern athletes and casual weekend warriors could understand. There are two basic families of running injuries, said Connors. The first is acute, a.k.a. sudden, which the doctor said accounts for only about 5 percent of his patients. The other is chronic. “The majority of injuries I see are chronic, caused by overuse or stress applied over a period of time,” he explained.
