several of the conditions related to Runner’s Impingement, which are addressed in this article, happen without the runner even knowing there is something wrong. The point is to avoid injury to the best of your ability by taking preventative measures, take each symptom seriously and pay attention to your body and anything out of the norm. More often than not, injuries can be avoided. Symptoms associated with pre-existing conditions such as Hip Impingement and Tarsal Coalition can typically be managed without resorting to surgery by resting, anti-inflammatories or physical therapy.

With proper diagnosis and treatment these conditions may be able to be managed in a way that prevents the runner from losing function of the affected area. Final take away?
