Common Running Injuries (Infographic)

Running is one of the most common forms of exercise in the world. You can do it almost anywhere and need very minimal equipment. Judging by the latest barefoot or minimalist running trend, some would argue that you don’t need any equipment at all.

This infographic illustrates some of the more common running injuries, how to avoid them, and how to recover from them.

Some of the interesting ‘facts’ pointed out are that 36 million people run every year and that 40% to 50% of those people experience at least one injury. This is not terribly clear though. Do 40% to 50% of runners experience at least one injury per year? The infographic gives sources but no specific citations making it difficult to determine.
