    I’ve found this book massively helpful in understanding the injury I have and the importance of treatment. Paul writes technically but not in so much detail that you’re swamped. As a keen runner and triathlete injuries are just something I’ve taken as something to expect and deal with but hopefully with the help of this book, my times on the sidelines will be less frequent. I’d recommend this to anyone interested in how their body works and how to keep it working.

    Being new to running I was picking up too many injuries. Lots of ideas and methods to help prevent and recover from injuries. Massively useful

    Having had treatment from Paul Hobrough for various running niggles in the past I knew this book was going to be legit – and it didn’t disappoint. A recent flare up of plantar fasciitis prompted me to buy the book and it has honestly changed the way I think about my injury recovery. I love that the rehab exercise routines are realistic in terms of volume and time so they are easy to commit to and stick with. Even though I have been running for 15 years (from recreational to elite GB level) I realise I don’t know it all when it comes to preventing injury.

    An excellent reference book, written with a practical and logical approach to the injuries that may be faced by the runner. Well thought out sections explain the possible cause , what the runner themselves can do to help with the injury and prevent re-occurrence, to what to expect when seeking professional help.

    Great read for beginners

  6. Mr G (verified owner)

    Great read, clear and insightful guidance on all the key components for runners to understand the essentials in maintaining a healthy regime.

  7. OutdoorsJonny (verified owner)

    Helpful reference book. Easy to read and not too technical. Includes a useful description of ‘prehab’ exercises to do to prevent injury as well as information on how to treat injuries. Obviously going to the physio is a good idea but this can help with minor niggles or those looking for a DIY option.

  8. Richard (verified owner)

    I use the word guide as you should not just rely on your interpretation. For any injury you should seek medical advice but this book helped me simplify “Physio Speak”. Cheers Paul

    Great and much needed book.

  10. Kramer (verified owner)

    Some great tips – well worth a read.

    I bought this book for my daughter because at over 40 she had decided to take up running. She tells me that it is her ‘running bible’ and she has gone on to excell herself just completing the Brussels half marathon.
    Thank you Paul for writing such an excellent book we await the next one.

    A Fantastic book , full of imformation that can be used by runners, physios, sports/massage therapist. Well written and easy to use.

    I bought this book on the recommendation from Claire Maxted of Wild Ginger Running ( check her out on YouTube). It’s a fabulous book with great strategies to keep running niggles at bay by strengething those all important areas we tend to neglect.

    I do the pre had routine as per the schedule and am noticing a big difference. If you have a specific injury, there is advice on rehabilitation and explainatiins of why the issues can occur.

    Thankfully I haven’t had any pain or strains since using the strategies listed and I have recommended the book to other runners. A must have in my opinion and has possibly saved me a lot of money and kept me running well.

  14. Mr. C. Haswell (verified owner)

    Great book and helped a lot with my studies and with rehabilitation of runners from our club. Easy to read and full of top information and treatments. Big thanks

    Bought as a xmas present for my partner who is a newish runner and was suffering from a painful knee. He’d been to see a sports injury specialist who gave him exercises to do, but he found this book really helpful too.

  16. Robin (verified owner)

    I have read many books on strength and conditioning and how to manage injuries, and consider this to be one of the best. The author is of good pedigree as he was Steve Cram’s physio. What I like about it are the clear explanations written in laymans terms combined with a sensible number of rehab exercises. Some books have pages of exercises, this one is much more specific and highlights the rehab for different types of injury.

  17. The Fury Zone (verified owner)

    A well written book with clear diagrams and easy to follow exercises. Recommended.

  18. Lola A (verified owner)

    Easy to read, dip in and out of and digest. Now to get my copy back from my friend!

  19. Woodcutter (verified owner)

    I bought this book when it came out around four years ago and found it extremely helpful. I’m a keen runner, although most of my injuries occur at work. The book is very informative. For each injury, he gives a possible reason, a self assessment, treatment and what to expect from a physio. I bought this copy as a Christmas present for my brother, also a keen runner. If I have a niggle, I always refer to this book first.

    This book seriously covers so much. I had multiple injuries and alignment problems from learning how to run by myself, and improperly and trying to get my body back on track was seriously hard.
    What I mean by “back on track” was noticing things like overpronation, lateral pelvic tilt, it band inflammation, single glute not firing properly, and more.

    When you search the internet for this kind of stuff the results are repetitive and confusing..
    This book names injuries you’ve never heard of and possibly have and then gives you the exercises to fix it.
    I spent years and lots of money on physical therapy and this book is better.

  21. Pol o Ceallaigh (verified owner)

    Fantastic book to help runner understand and manage niggles and injuries if they arise and the importance of preventing them

    It’s easy to understand and work out what you need to do
