Stuart Hinds explains the common causes of leg and foot injuries
Many common lower limb injuries could be avoided!
Research has shown that more than half (54%) of sports-related injuries refer to the lower extremities.
Just about anyone who is regularly active will be familiar with, or know someone who has suffered from runner's knee, shin splints, foot or ankle pain.
Whilst these injuries may often stem from a complex chain, or from trauma, many common 'over-use' injuries of the lower limbs are predictable and could be avoided.
In the video above, Stuart Hinds describes the most common causes and the best ways to keep your lower limbs in good shape.
