Brad Beer

In episode 265 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer joins in on a Q&A session with Physiotherapist Hamish Vickerman sharing around running related injuries on this expert edition.

I sat behind the microphone for a Q&A and generally look at all things running related injuries, prevention, treatment and myths. I was joined by my good friend and physiotherapy colleague from university days, Hamish Vickerman, founder of the Fasciitis Fighter, award winning device formulated for the overcoming of plantar fasciitis or fasciopathy and Hamish asked me a series of questions around running related injuries.

You’ll hear about the benefits of running, the most common running injuries that runners and triathletes incur, the scientific known causes of running related injuries, the role of strength and conditioning for runners and key tips on overcoming the top three problems that runners incur, which are bone tendon and joint related injuries.

If you are a runner, then at some stage you are going to need to work through a running related injury. So here are some hints, tips, mythbusters and information on this expert edition.
