    What to do if you’re injured while jogging


    Do you go out jogging regularly? If you do, you probably do it for health reasons. You may do it to increase muscle mass, lose weight and to improve your cardiovascular fitness levels. Whatever your own personal reason might be, you are probably also aware of how annoying it can be if you have to stop jogging for a while for some reason. Your fitness levels can be impacted very quickly if you have to do this.

    As such, it makes sense to avoid stopping if you possibly can. However, if you were to be injured while jogging, this may not be possible. For instance, if you tripped over a hazard or caught your foot in a pothole on the pavement or in the road, you could do yourself a serious injury. Broken bones take several weeks to heal, during which time you would obviously be unable to jog.

    Who was responsible?

    This is a key question you will need to ask yourself if you were injured while jogging recently. In the case of a pothole or other hazard involving the road or pavement, there is a chance the local council could potentially be at fault. Fortunately, all councils do an excellent job of maintaining their local roads and pavements, so such incidents do tend to be rare.

    However, there is still a chance you may have been hurt while jogging and if this has occurred, you will know how painful injuries can be, and how annoying it can be to have to put a stop to your normal exercise routine.
