The two causes of running injuries are impact and overuse. Impact affects your joints – from hitting the ground too hard as you run. Overuse injuries happen in your muscles when you demand more from them than they can deliver.
There is good news: Both of these types of injuries can be avoided by improving your running technique. Once your body mechanics are aligned and you put the Chi Principles to practice, overuse and impact injuries become a thing of the past.
ChiRunning is based on a centuries-old principle from T’ai Chi: shift your workload to the core muscles. This allows your leg muscles to do less, and the lower leg muscles to do almost nothing.
