Dear Zai Zai Thank you for your question - it’s certainly a common problem that we see in clinic! It sounds from what you have said that there is a potential overlap of pain generators - it could be your back and equally it could be your hip!

Time and time again, whether you are a seasoned marathoner or the neophyte jogger, you've probably heard this: Running too much will hurt your knees.

As a physiotherapist who runs frequently, I'd be a millionaire if I was given a quarter everytime I was asked, "Physio, will running damage my knees?" or being told, "You're a physio, you should know that running will damage your knees!"

Running can bring both joy and pain. Running keeps you fit, allows you to stay trim, works your body, and clears your mind. However, all this grinds to a halt when you get injured.

What do TCM practitioners, Orthopaedic surgeons, Sport medicine doctors, physiotherapists and chiropractors have in common? That's right, they all see Singaporeans with back pain.

Back pain treatment is a multi-million dollar industry in Singapore - clearly, the problem afflicts many of us. It's no wonder that tons of marketing money is poured into targeting back pain sufferers.

Me: So when do you get your pain?

Patient: When I'm running!

Me: So how does that affect your training?

Patient: I CAN’T RUN!

With so many running events taking place in Singapore over varying distances, there's a running challenge to suit everyone’s level of fitness and training. However, running should be fun, and NOT something that's associated with discomfort.

The following took place at Thrive Championship, August 5th 2017, in association with Fight Pro-Motion.

Blood streamed across Steven Le’s face in the closing seconds of the round. The screams of the crowd merged into a collective gasp as the young Vietnamese fighter spun in the air and landed a spectacular cartwheel kick on his opponent Idris Hassan. Moments earlier, Idris, an executive at Thye Hua Kwan, had landed a vicious spear elbow to Steven’s forehead.

Sports Medicine is a specialty that involves diagnosing and treating sports or exercise-related injuries.

I became interested in Sport Medicine while still a student because of the diverse nature of the work - you get to work with patients young and old, as well as treat both recreational and competitive athletes!

In Singapore, doctors are trained for a minimum of 5 additional years before they become specialists in the field. It takes a lot of experience to accurately diagnose and properly manage sports injuries.

Myth: Long runs are a great form of cardio

I just had to address this one, as I've always struggled to understand why anyone would regularly do long, uncomfortable runs in the outdoor sauna that is Singapore.

Off the top of my head, there're only 2 good reasons I can think of for long runs:

  1. You love running as a hobby
  2. You're preparing for the army half marathon, IPPT and 2.4 km run etc
