Sticky:How to identify, treat & avoid 7 most common injuries

Post by benjohn » Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:11 pm

This just flashed by from @runnersworld twitter stream, and looks super useful: How to identify, treat and avoid the 7 most common running injuries.

It covers (sorry for the shouty upper case, I'm copy and pasting):
RUNNER’S KNEE (PATELLOFEMORAL PAIN SYNDROME)
ILIOTIBIAL (IT)-BAND SYNDROME
SHIN SPLINTS (MEDIAL TIBIAL STRESS SYNDROME)
STRESS FRACTURE
PLANTAR FASCIITIS (PF)
HAMSTRING STRAIN
ACHILLES TENDINOPATHY

This is a great list, is there any way you could make it a sticky post? I think having this up top where it's easy to see would be really useful.
