Understanding Common Running Injuries

  • Plantar Fasciitis: A frequent culprit of heel and foot pain, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes. It's a common issue among our community of runners.

  • Shin Splints: Also known as medial tibial stress syndrome, shin splints cause pain along the shinbone. It often strikes when runners increase their mileage or intensity too quickly.

  • Runner's Knee: This pain around the kneecap, officially known as Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, is a familiar complaint. It's often due to the kneecap being out of alignment, exacerbated by running on hard or uneven surfaces.

  • Achilles Tendinitis: An overuse injury impacting the Achilles tendon. It's prevalent among runners who suddenly boost their running intensity or duration.

  • Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS): ITBS triggers pain on the outside of the knee, caused by stress on the ligament that runs from the hip to the shin. It's a condition we often see in runners who favor uneven surfaces or downhill routes.knee pain

Lever's Solution: Unloading the body

At Lever Movement, we're proud to offer a groundbreaking Body Weight Support solution. Here’s how it can revolutionize your recovery in 4 simple ways:

  • 1) Reduced Impact: Our device lightens the load on your lower limbs, perfect for conditions like plantar fasciitis and shin splints. It lets you train without the full pressure that typically comes with running. Reducing impact helps reduce pain! Reduce anywhere from 1 to 45 lbs of your body weight.

  • 2) Controlled Rehabilitation: We understand the importance of a gradual return to form. Our device offers a controlled environment to incrementally increase your training load and intensity, crucial for managing runner's knee and Achilles tendinitis. This blog shows the weekly progression you can use for returning from your common running injuries.

  • 3) Enhanced Running Mechanics: For conditions like ITBS, maintaining proper form is key. Our device supports your body, allowing you to focus on technique and reduce stress on the IT band.

  • 4) Customizable Support: We know each runner's journey is unique. That's why our device is designed to be versatile, mobile, and adjustable, catering to your specific rehabilitation needs. The LEVER Go+ was specifically designed to travel with you so that your recovery doesn't have to stop if you are on the move.
