Run Injury-Free with Chi

Running doesn’t hurt your body, it’s the way you run that causes problems. ChiRunning significantly lowers injury rates for all runners, while improving performance at the same time.

Eliminate the two main causes of injury with Chi

Running injuries don't have to happen. In fact, they’re most often a result of either overuse or impact:

Overuse injuries are caused by using your muscles incorrectly or beyond their capacity.

Impact injuries come from over-striding, which creates a heel strike and produces excessive braking motion.

Come back with confidence

No one likes to get injured and having to take a break from their running practice.

ChiRunning can help you discover the cause of your injury, and then help you correct the problem at its source. When you eliminate the cause of an injury, you’ll never have the problem again, and you can run without fear of a recurrence. That’s a major confidence builder!

Prevent and Manage Running Injuries with Chi

Of course, the best way to prevent running injuries is to run in a way that doesn’t hurt your body. That is easier said than done, and that’s why ChiRunning focuses on good running technique.

On the other hand, if you need to manage existing injuries, the best place to start is to go back what caused the injury in the first place. We can help you there too, by showing you how to be a detective and discover for yourself what you’re doing that needs to be corrected.

Whether it’s a small flaw in your movement habits or a weak muscle causing the problem, we’ll help you decipher what’s going on and how to correct the problem. Many times the solution is easier than you think.
