[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Leg pain in runners is a common complaint in any sports medicine practice. Although the possible diagnoses are many, the evaluation depends on a thorough history. A comprehensive physical examination should include not only examination of the injury but the kinetic chain and core. It is imperative to recognize functional deficiencies in core strength and balance to prevent further injury. The successful integration of history, physical examination, and functional testing will enhance your evaluation of the injured runner and help return athletes to sport.
