David is an Adelaide man in his sixties who has been a recreational runner for over 30 years. When another bout of severe knee pain hit at the beginning of 2020 he thought “old age” had caught up with him and he’d have to hang up his runners. However with his commitment and a tightly structured program of strengthening and slow progression back into running, David was able to compete in the Adelaide half marathon just 9 months later. Let his story motivate you to sit less and move more and achieve your activity goals.
Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder in the world. It causes pain and dysfunction to many joints of the body. What can you do to feel and move better?
Hamstring pain – deep in the butt at the sitting bones, perhaps even down the leg is a common complaint in recreational runners. It often starts after running a bit too far or too fast. Hopefully it settles after backing off for a couple of weeks. For some it can go on and get worse limiting running or even daily activities.
