Injury Expert. Lower Back Pain.

Lower back pain while running is very common and can be caused by a number of things.

SYMPTOMS

  • Pain in the lower back while running, normally occurs after 10-15 mins. No injury has occurred.
  • Pain generally worsened by leaning backwards or sideways.
  • Your back often feels stiff and vulnerable, especially but not exclusively when running

COMMON CAUSES

  • Increase in intensity, length or duration of your running.
  • Lack of core strength in combination with hill running.
  • Incorrect footwear and/or insufficient (worn out) cushioning.
  • Asymmetrical running style due to an over-dominant leg, stride length or gait behaviour.

SOLUTIONS

  • Use currexSole insoles for increased stabilisation, shock absorption and fit.
  • Stretch hips, buttocks and hip flexors – perform the Child’s Pose stretch.
  • Strengthen Hamstrings and Glutes – run with a lower back support while rehab.
  • Ensure that your footwear is ideal – see a specialist
