The Run Smarter Podcast

Jan 28, 2021

During these success story segments, Brodie interviews a runner who has managed to overcome a running related injury after much hardship and frustration.

When injured, it is easy to find social media posts & stories from other injured runners which are discouraging and worrying. Tales of chronic pain, debilitating symptoms and failed treatment techniques often manifest anxiety and thoughts of the worst outcome.

However, this is only a small fraction of runners and a skewed bias around the injured population. So, this segment aims to bring hope and optimism, while sharing treatment success. 

On today's episode, Brodie talks with Todd Charnetski, a passionate runner who developed bilateral proximal hamstring tendinopathy back in 2007 after pushing hard during his half marathon preparation. 

Todd had tried years of different treatments. Icing, massage, stretching, compression, strengthening, medication, PRP, cortisone, tenex and several other remedies. It wasn't until 2018 when a shift in his management started showing drastic improvement. 

Todd is currently 100% better on one side and 95% better on the other and is excited to share his story.
