Over the weekend, Dr Andy Wee conducted the second Straits Times Run clinic. Topics that were covered at the clinic included injury-free training, the runner’s foot, as well as common running injuries around the knee and ankle such as stress fractures.
Preventive measures such as identifying appropriate running shoes according to foot type and progressive training were also highlighted.
Said Dr Wee “We want them (the runners) to stay injury-free when they train. We also want to make sure that as they continue their running, they recognise when they should seek medical treatment because we see a lot of running enthusiasts who run through their pain with persistent symptoms in their knees and feet.”
