First Aid Tips for Smaller Running Injuries

There’s no shortage of information online on how to handle the usual wear and tear that could occur as a result of running. It’s important to familiarize with the symptoms and solutions of frequent injuries such as shin splints and Achilles tendinitis, because even though they’re common, if untreated they could quickly become serious impairments that cause long-term damage.

But what about smaller injuries? These wounds may be just as common, but they seem to garner less attention from the media because they’re rather insignificant. Meaning, you’d likely need to be pretty negligent for any of them to develop into anything severe. Even so, it’s still important to know how to properly dress these cuts and scraps (and it turns out it may not be as simple as you think).

As runners, we’re always pushing ourselves to improve and overcome new challenges. Don’t let a minor injury be what ruins a perfectly good workout!
