Does anyone know where I can obtain statistics on the number of runners who suffer from chronic pain?
I can't find anything specific anywhere on the web. If you have any suggestions or pointers please, let me know where to look.cheriton said:There' a fair bit about it on the net but more about specific pain such as knee, leg or chest .
Curious to know why this specific question?
Take a look at this blog.
