Common Running Injuries Are Almost Always Preventable There is a high incidence of injuries to runners because of the stress it puts on your bones and joints and also because of the competitive nature of humans.  Our desire to run more and faster than we should often results in injuries that are entirely preventable.  Because of his years of experience treating runners, Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS understands the desire to train for races and stay fit.  He also understands how to identify the proper footwear and training surfaces for individuals who are struggling with running injuries.  Ingrown toenails, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and stress fractures…these are all injuries that are frequently caused by overtraining.  A proper diagnos, coupled with rest and rehabilitation will have you back to running in no time.
