Plantar Fasciitis Is the pain and inflammation of the Plantar Fascia. This is the connective tissue running from the heel bone to the base of the toe joints. The longer Plantar Fasciitis is present, the worse it will get. It is a nagging problem that you will want to get a jump (or a step) on preventing at the first sign of symptoms.

Shin Splints are characterized by pain in the connective tissues associated with the muscles near the shin. You will usually feel tenderness and pain concentrated in the lower shin during exercise. Shin splits are among one of the most frustrating injuries an athlete can experience, and the best way to avoid a shin split is to prevent them from happening in the first place (See: Preventing Shin Splints)

Runner’s Knee or Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome is the most common running injury and accounts for nearly 20% of all running injuries. This condition can be characterized by pain beneath the kneecap. It’s hard to pinpoint a single cause of runner’s knee. The sooner you cut the workload, the faster healing begins. (See: Preventing Runner’s Knee)

Achilles Tendonitis is a nagging condition that causes pain along the back of the leg through the Achilles tendon. It commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs. If you start to feel Achilles pain, stop running and start working out the root cause of the problem. Once you’ve worked it out, let the heeling begin. (See: Preventing Achilles Tendinitis)
