When do I need to see a running physio or running coach? By Marathon Physio Lucy Macdonald
Do I need to see a running physio or coach now?
It depends on your objectives and how much of an investment you want to make at this stage. Most people will be fine without seeing a physio or running coach if you build up your running slowly and follow all of the advice in this guide.
What are the reasons I should see a running physio or coach now?
There are two situations when it would be valuable to see Lucy and her physio team at this stage:
If you have a definite time target in mind, then it is a good idea to see a specialist physio or running coach who can carry out a running screening assessment, give you technique advice and provide you a tailored programme based on your individual biomechanics.
If you have pain when you run then it is important to get in touch with Lucy and her physio team now because the sooner you get it looked at the sooner you reduce the risk of it stopping you from running.
