dc.description.abstract Long distance running is characterised by a high injury rate (van Mechelen, 1995; Lysholm and Wiklander, 1987). It is an ever-growing sport, being tried by increasing numbers of people with varying degrees of athletic ability. Injuries are detrimental to training, increase the risk of sustaining another injury, and are expensive to treat placing demands on our already strained health care system. Runners are healthy people who would require less health care than most people if they could avoid injuries. Iliotibial band friction syndrome (ITBFS), is one of the most common running injuries experienced. Buttock and/or posterior thigh pain (BAOPTP) is another common condition, which is also resistant to treatment. It tends to become chronic and to result in ongoing morbidity. en_ZA
