Hip Pain in Runners with Dr Christopher Segler from Doc On The Run Part 2

In this week’s episode, we have part 2 of “Hip Pain in Runners” from the Doc On The Run Podcast with Dr. Christopher Segler. I was privileged enough to be able to share my story on his podcast!  The episode with Dr. Segler was so long that we had to cut it into two parts.

 

You can check out Part 1 of the Doc on The Run Podcast HERE on Dr. Segler’s page or catch the first part of our interview on the Doc on The Run YouTube Channel below!

 

We share part 2 of the interview on the Healthy Runner Podcast in episode 51. We finish up our discussion about hip pain and all things that may attribute to it in runners.

“Dr. Duane Scotti, host of the Healthy Runner podcast was one of the guest experts at the 2-Day Runner’s Rapid Recovery Summit. This replay is a recording of his session on Hip Pain in Runners is one you won’t want to miss. Here is some of what we’re going to cover:

 

 

The top 3 most common causes of hip pain in runners.

 

 

What exactly is the labrum and how does it get injured in runners?

 

 

How does joint laxity or hip instability contribute to hip injuries?

 

 

What is the number one indication that somebody has a tear of the labrum and should seek medical attention before continuing to run?

 

 

In this session Duane is talking about hip pain in runners and some simple things you can do to address it, improve it and keep it from getting worse.

 

 

Here is an outline of the hip questions we discussed:

 

 

Although “hip pain in runners” is a huge topic, what are the top 3 most common causes of hip pain in runners?

 

 

I know you personally had to recover from hip pain caused by a labral tear.

 

 

What exactly is the labrum and how does it get injured in runners?

 

 

How did you tear your labrum?

 

 

What was your first indication that something was wrong with your hip? What did it feel like?

 

 

If someone is listening to this right now if somebody has just suggested that maybe they have a labral tear what is the number one indication that somebody has a tear of the labrum and should seek medical attention before continuing to run?

 

 

When you tore your labrum an orthopedic surgeon told you that you should not be running on a treadmill. How are treadmills bad for labral tears ?

 

 

I know you started the Healthy Runner Podcast because you felt like there was a gap between medical professionals and the recipients of healthcare. Tell me more about that and how you think the podcast like yours can actually help close that gap.

 

 

I know you have taught as a professor at a school of physical therapy and I’m wondering how it is that you think that experience of teaching other doctors, other physical therapists about physical therapy helps you better understand patients and how to help injured runners better.

 

 

I know your entire mission and mission of your podcast is to help runners prevent running injuries and avoid getting injured in the first place. If you could only offer three pieces of advice to a runner, what would you say are the top three tips for preventing and overtraining injury?

 

 

Let’s talk about hip tightness versus hip weakness.

 

 

How does joint laxity or hip instability contribute to hip injuries and is strengthening something that can address it and help an injured runner prevent the re-injury?

 

 

What about the other side of that equation? What about when your hips are too tight? How does that contribute to hip injuries in runners like labral tears? And what can we do about it?

 

 

If you could only had 10 minutes a day to strengthen a runner’s hips, what exercises would you give them to do to become more stable and more injury-resistant?

 

 

If you could only recommend 3 stretches, which ones do you think would have the most power in overtraining injury prevention for runners?”

“I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude towards Duane Scotti and the Spark Healthy Runner program. When I started working with Duane, I had been dealing with chronic shin splints/posterior tibialis tendinitis for almost a year.

I had worked with multiple other coaches and physical therapists with little success and was at the point of almost giving up on my love for running. Duane is so kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable as both a physical therapist and running coach. Our first virtual meeting lasted two hours because he was so meticulous in his assessment. His strength and running program is progressive and created so that you can continue to build strength and mileage as you heal. His strength program is unique, effective, and fun.

Additionally, his warm-up routine is awesome and includes drills that over time have made me a more efficient runner. His training platform is easy to use, and he is always readily available to chat when problems or questions arise.

Over four months of working with Duane, I have built back to five days a week of running and am almost back up to my pre-injury weekly mileage and long run distance. Whenever I have flare ups or setbacks, Duane reassures me and makes necessary adjustments so that I can continue to progress in my running journey. I have had so much success with him so far that I have signed on for four more months so that he can help me to continue getting stronger as I train for the Dopey challenge in Disney World.

If you are struggling with a running injury and are feeling hopeless, you have to reach out to Duane Scotti. Of course, you will have to put in a lot of hard work, but with Duane by your side, you will be able to achieve your goals and more. Thank you Spark Healthy Runner for bringing the spark back to my running!”

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!  I have never considered myself a runner and I knew I needed to be smart about it because I am no spring chicken. Spark preached getting strong and healthy to be injury free and they practice what they preach.  I am soooo glad I made the investment in me!  I finished my half marathon last weekend and couldn’t be any happier!  The program fed me all the steps I needed to essentially learn how to run long distance, build strength, nutrition help, a forum of other runners and probably most important was the 1:1 coaching.  I had no idea how to tackle training for a 1/2 marathon and this program broke all of it down, had it individualized for me and we tweaked as we went to make sure I was staying healthy and strong.  I had so many questions the week prior to my race and Coach Cat was always there for me and answering all the questions and issues I had-and believe me there were a lot!  The biggest benefit I think I got was the strength. I am strong and fit. But most important was what I gained emotionally.  I built confidence and strength I didn’t know I had, even at my age.  Honestly could not have done this without Spark Healthy Runners!

My Healthy Runner journey started after I had battled bilateral achilles pain for a few months and was frustrated how it affected my running. As soon as I talked to Duane I knew I had made the right decision. His positivity, enthusiasm and genuine care are infectious. The training plan that was tailored to me included specific exercises to rehab my injury and I was so excited that I didn’t have to stop running. It took patience to only run slow for a few weeks but I trusted the process and it got me me to where I am now: running pain free. We made adjustments to the plan throughout whenever needed having someone in your corner that is always there with guidance and support throughout the process was invaluable.

I just ran my second half marathon, both with Duane’s coaching, and PR’d by over 9 minutes! I got all choked up in the last mile when I realized that I felt strong and could still kick it up a notch.

I’m so thankful for the Healthy Runner program, community and the entire coaching team for all the support!
