What you need to know about running injuries

I’m not a runner, but I have several friends who are avid marathon runners. From time to time they have suffered from running injuries — from muscle strains to shin splints. Sam Carter, M.D., orthopedic and sports medicine specialist at Norton Healthcare, explains the symptoms of running injuries, the most common injuries, what to do to relieve pain and treatment options. If you’re a runner, pay attention to your body and take care of yourself to prevent serious running injuries.
