Format: Paperback
Running Injuries: Treatment and Prevention The book made interesting reading,it was easy to reference the symptoms causes and effects and offered constructive advice for future avoidance of problems not just in the current area of distress.I consider myself a seasoned and capable runner that with passing years the body suffers with high mileage sessions but with my own run/walk strategy I am able to go further and more enjoyably.Galloway method has been quite a revelation in my recovery process and the combination of the easy to understand text and getting Professional Osteopathy/Physical Therapy advice and treatment has brought new hope to my continued 'Running' future.
Continuous running had always been my goal for longer distances but the cost to my physical and mental wellbeing was too great,not to mention treatment costs.

Nothing New Here 10 Aug 2010
By x - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First let me say that I am a big fan of Galloway. For those of you who are not familiar with him, he advocates a three day a week, low mileage training method where you alternate walking and running rather than running consistently for races from the 5k to the marathon. He firmly believes that this reduces injury rates. Personally I have struggled with runners knee for years and despite doctors and therapists I continue to struggle with it. Galloway's running methods have allowed me to continue running regularly with minimal knee problems, so when I saw this book I thought I may find some new and helpful information. Well, for those of you familiar with Galloway, don't waste your money, nothing new here. As far as the treatment reccomendations by Dr. Hannaford, they are vague and general. For example, regarding runners knee he states that strengthening VMO (a portion of your quadraceps muscle) is very effective but then does not give any exercises on how to do this, or states that a knee brace or strap may be helpful and that you should try a variety of them to see what works for you. Again, no guidance. Why would I use an open patella brace over a closed one? Why try a tendon strap. Some direction would be helpful. Truthfuly he does a far better job at describing injuries than he does at reccomending treatment, a major flaw in this book. Overall not very helpfull. I am donating mine to the library, maybe someone will find it more helpful than me.

Brief and Fairly Effective Discussion of Injuries in the Galloway Format 16 Dec 2009
By Daniel Hurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are familiar with Galloway's books, you will find the style of this book familiar. Galloway's strength is that his books are straight forward, economical, not a lot of jargon, usually plenty of pictures and he gets to the point quickly. This book follows that format with the exception of numerous pictures. Don't expect extensive discussion of specific injuries but Galloway and fellow author Hannford provide an informative, direct and a very helpful review of injuries in a format familiar to most running injury books by categorizing injuries under specific body parts. After a very good, short, introduction on why injuries occur and how to prevent them, the book leaps into the chapters and then into subcategories that list and define specific injuries. Each discussion of injuries remind me of medical cards because the discussions of each injury is headlined by color coded sub titles; such as the name of the injury, location of pain, description of pain, basic anatomy, causes, treatment, pearls (sort of good news/bad news things to do not to do, example: Achilles tendon pain, heel lifts but no stretching) when to stop training and consequences of running/walking through pain. I have found the book an effective source to help diagnose injuries and to get a very good idea on cause, the anatomy involved and in particular, treatment. I would have preferred more graphics or pictures with diagrams of the injured area since there is only one general picture at the start of each chapter and none specific to an injury. However, this is offset by the reasonable price and quality details on injuries and treatment. One demonstration of the up to datedness of the book is the section on over the counter medication like NSAIDS (non-steroidal like Aleve and Advil). The authors bring up a valid point that NSAIDS can interfere with healing when they are being used too long beyond the acute stage. The down side, there are no listed references, when referring to studies; there are no footnotes or references in the back of the book, that is part of the economy of a Galloway book. The last part of the book features some relatively familiar Galloway tips such as his Run-Walk-Run training method and a quick summary of running tips ranging from hot weather running, shoe width, pronation etc. Overall, a very good book in simple terms. I give this book 5 stars because of its broad references that includes detail on hamstring injuries, particularly ischia tuberosities, that is lacking in a number of highly recommended running injury books. So, a lot of information on virtual all possible running injuries. In addition, the treatment recommendations are paying off for my current injury, which required more patience but is working.

way better than most advice books 26 Nov 2010
By Howard D. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have come to appreciate Mr. Galloway's books as I've aged b/c the experience they describe matches what I've experienced. This book is no different. Much more specific advice and explanation than other books. Unfortunately, I'm writing this review while nursing a calf injury.... anyhow, this one is worth the bucks...

Best Advice on Running Injuries You Will Find! 9 Oct 2013
By Ann E. Reisch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is by far the best compilation of advice for runners I have ever seen when it comes to running injuries! Dr. Hannaford who wrote the medical portions of the book has been so helpful on a variety of running issues over the years that I consult this book at the first sign of potential trouble. The book is written in an easy to read format and provides clear and detailed descriptions to identify problems, the probable underlying causes that created the issue, how to best treat the condition, whether to continue running with the injury as well as the consequences of doing so. As an accomplished ultra runner himself and former medical director for the Olympic trials, Dr. Hannaford has the education, training and personal experience to quickly identify issues we runners typically encounter and offers his advice on how to best address each condition. This book is well worth it's price so get it now ... you won't be sorry!
