PODCAST: Runners' injuries and pain (Part 2)

Osteopathic approach to runners' injuries and pain (Part 2), with Steve Dinneen

Common running injuries

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 second episode of our series of podcasts with Steve, he shares some treatment, management and biomechanical techniques and what you need to consider when dealing with some commonly encountered running injuries:

  • Tibialis posterior
  • Gluteal muscles 
  • The knee joint and iliotibial band (ITB) issues
  • Plantar fascia
  • Bone stress 
  • Achilles tendon

In the previous episode, Steve discussed the general principles of injury development and prevention, and the role osteopaths can play in managing running injuries.
