PODCAST: Runners' injuries and pain

Osteopathic approach to runners' injuries and pain, with Steve Dinneen

Injury development and prevention

Dr Steve Dinneen, osteopath, an elite runner, a Melbourne-based osteopath, running coach, business owner, husband and father. Steve has competed at the state, national and international levels, and works with professional runners as a coach and osteopath. Steve completed a Human Movement Sports Science degree before undertaking his osteopathic studies at RMIT University. He currently practices at Doncaster Osteopathic Clinic and, along with his wife Mel, established Dinneen Runners squad, and is part of the coaching team.

Anyone who watched the Tokyo Olympics men's marathon may have caught the interview with Liam Adams, who finished 24th and gave a shout-out to Steve, saying “He is incredible and keeps me injury-free”. This was a fantastic promotion for osteopathy in professional sports and personally for Steve. 

In this first episode of our series of podcasts with Steve discusses:

  • His career journey as a runner, osteopath and coach
  • How he looks for the cause of an injury, rather than just treating the symptoms
  • Why it is important to understand the role that conditioning, biomechanics and training load play in injury development
  • Specific history-taking when treating runners
  • The extra skills Steve has developed to complement his osteopathic training 
  • Key elements for injury prevention
  • What role an osteopath can play in injury prevention and common treatment errors
  • Ideal warm-up, recovery and self-management techniques

Future episodes with Steve will cover the management of specific injuries and how he has helped elite athletes stay on top of their game in a range of sports.
