Are you an avid runner? You may be interested to take part in one of the most recognised events in Ealing. ActonW3.com features the much anticipated running event this September, and a major sports brand will be a key participant in making the affair enjoyable and safe for runners:
"Runners in Ealing can usually be spotted wearing their gear so they will be pleased to hear top sports brand ASICS has just been unveiled as the Official Sportswear and Training Partner of the Ealing Half Marathon.
The award-winning Ealing Half Marathon takes place in West London for the 3rd time on Sunday 28th September and gets ever popular.
The race now attracts 6,500 runners of all levels from London and beyond, and has established itself as a race not to miss in the running calendar."
Serious athletes and amateur fitness enthusiasts alike are advised to prepare and be careful in such major events. Lack of training, and running alongside thousands of people are factors that can contribute to the likelihood of sports injuries. If you do get injured, consider seeking Ealing physiotherapy treatment together with or after necessary medical attention, so you can recover more quickly.
Muscle strains are commonly experienced after intense or prolonged exercises, especially if you haven’t done proper warm-ups. When the muscles in the groin, hamstrings, thighs, calves, and other parts of the body are overworked or stretched beyond their limit, the muscle tissues can tear. The damage translates to painful sensations and swelling in the area.
Sprained ankles are also common sports injuries for runners. Here, the ligaments in the ankle are torn as the joint is rolled too outwardly, which could happen when running on uneven surfaces, or landing in awkward positions. The injury also results in pain and swelling in the area. Other ligaments in the legs may tear and cause similar – or worse – symptoms.
Specialists that provide physiotherapy around Ealing, such as CK Physio, can help in the management of these conditions. Hot and cold treatments, manipulative or exercise therapy, and other techniques can be administered to reduce the symptoms and restore the affected area’s function and range of movement. Certified therapists can also design a rehabilitation programme for faster positive outcomes in recovery.
