Injured Runner Clinic

Since 35 to 75 percent of runners need medical treatment each year for running-related injuries, running safely is crucial. The Injured Runners Clinic at Boston Children’s Hospital was developed to help runners of all ages and abilities who have chronic injuries.

Learn more about the Injured Runner Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital.The Injured Runners Clinic is very similar to our Sports Medicine Clinic. In addition to a clinical office visit with a sports medicine physician to address your injury, runners will receive a gait analysis and potentially other specialized services (such as compartment testing). All of this helps the physician identify the injury, its cause and ideas for preventing future recurrences.

Please note: patients need to be referred to this clinic. 

The visit is covered by most insurance providers, but check with your insurance representative for more information.
