Abstract Runners and running injuries may be managed in an office setting by the interested orthopedist. Special equipment, such as videotaping, may be helpful but is not essential. The runner's program must be reviewed and any training errors corrected. The treatment of most injuries requires either a reduction in mileage or the temporary cessation of running. During the time of rest, or relative rest, alternative programs such as "running in water" are helpful for maintaining cardiovascular and general condition. Orthotic devices are often used and can help to compensate for some biomechanical imbalances that cause injury. A program for returning to running after an injury has also been suggested.
