Engaging in any kind of physical activity such as exercising or sports contributes to a person’s overall being. Strenuous activities, though, may lead to injuries. Athletes tend to suffer from them due to their repetitive activities, which may damage their bodies after a long time.
Marathon runners, for instance, usually experience muscle fatigue, tightness in their hip rotators, and tension in their saphenous nerve through the adductor canal. According to an article on ChiroNexus.net, a 29 year old female runner endured constant pain in her knee brought about by perpetual participation in marathons. Her diagnosis disclosed saphenous nerve entrapment caused by instability in her pelvic area, along with external rotator fatigue.
