In this week’s episode, we have part 2 of “Hip Pain in Runners” from the Doc On The Run Podcast with Dr. Christopher Segler. I was privileged enough to be able to share my story on his podcast! The episode with Dr. Segler was so long that we had to cut it into two parts.
You can check out Part 1 of the Doc on The Run Podcast HERE on Dr. Segler’s page or catch the first part of our interview on the Doc on The Run YouTube Channel below!
We share part 2 of the interview on the Healthy Runner Podcast in episode 51. We finish up our discussion about hip pain and all things that may attribute to it in runners.
Listen to the Podcast Episode during your next run!
“Dr. Duane Scotti, host of the Healthy Runner podcast was one of the guest experts at the 2-Day Runner’s Rapid Recovery Summit. This replay is a recording of his session on Hip Pain in Runners is one you won’t want to miss. Here is some of what we’re going to cover:
The top 3 most common causes of hip pain in runners.
What exactly is the labrum and how does it get injured in runners?
How does joint laxity or hip instability contribute to hip injuries?
What is the number one indication that somebody has a tear of the labrum and should seek medical attention before continuing to run?
In this session Duane is talking about hip pain in runners and some simple things you can do to address it, improve it and keep it from getting worse.
Here is an outline of the hip questions we discussed:
Although “hip pain in runners” is a huge topic, what are the top 3 most common causes of hip pain in runners?
I know you personally had to recover from hip pain caused by a labral tear.
What exactly is the labrum and how does it get injured in runners?
How did you tear your labrum?
What was your first indication that something was wrong with your hip? What did it feel like?
If someone is listening to this right now if somebody has just suggested that maybe they have a labral tear what is the number one indication that somebody has a tear of the labrum and should seek medical attention before continuing to run?
When you tore your labrum an orthopedic surgeon told you that you should not be running on a treadmill. How are treadmills bad for labral tears ?
I know you started the Healthy Runner Podcast because you felt like there was a gap between medical professionals and the recipients of healthcare. Tell me more about that and how you think the podcast like yours can actually help close that gap.
I know you have taught as a professor at a school of physical therapy and I’m wondering how it is that you think that experience of teaching other doctors, other physical therapists about physical therapy helps you better understand patients and how to help injured runners better.
I know your entire mission and mission of your podcast is to help runners prevent running injuries and avoid getting injured in the first place. If you could only offer three pieces of advice to a runner, what would you say are the top three tips for preventing and overtraining injury?
Let’s talk about hip tightness versus hip weakness.
How does joint laxity or hip instability contribute to hip injuries and is strengthening something that can address it and help an injured runner prevent the re-injury?
What about the other side of that equation? What about when your hips are too tight? How does that contribute to hip injuries in runners like labral tears? And what can we do about it?
If you could only had 10 minutes a day to strengthen a runner’s hips, what exercises would you give them to do to become more stable and more injury-resistant?
If you could only recommend 3 stretches, which ones do you think would have the most power in overtraining injury prevention for runners?”
The NEW Healthy Runner Strength program will do just that and is for the dedicated runner who wants to level up over these next 3 months and continue moving forward!⠀⠀

“I developed IT band syndrome during my first marathon training cycle last year and ended up in physical therapy for about 3 months. I was told not to run if I had any pain at all. I lost so much time “recovering” that I ended up deferring my registration to the next year. I spent the next summer training for the same marathon when about 6 weeks out, that familiar IT band pain returned. I could barely finish a mile. I didn’t want to go back to my physical therapist because I knew what he was going to tell me. Stop running. I was so frustrated and started to feel like marathons weren’t for me. I stumbled upon the healthy runner podcast and learned that I don’t have to stop running in order to recover from injury! I was skeptical about an online physical therapy session. But I reached out to Dr. Scotti and he was able to give me the tools to mitigate my pain within the first session! I was able to complete my training cycle and made it to the finish line of my first marathon with his help! I highly recommend!”
“I’d been dealing with Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy (PHT) for about 4 years and had been doing PT, but still had lingering pains. I just figured I’d have to suck it up and deal with it because that was as good as I was going to get. But then, I came across a podcast of Duane being interviewed by Jason Fitzgerald on PHT and how he overcame the injury, and my curiosity was piqued. I met with him virtually and he has been a GODSEND! I’m able to sit as I type this! I can bend over and get in and out of cars without pain! And, I’m RUNNING again!!! It is amazing to be able to do things that I haven’t been able to do without pain since 2016!!! Thank you so much Duane for being an incredible PT!!”
“I suffered from IT band syndrome for four years before seeing Dr. Scotti in April 2020. Before then, I couldn’t run more than about 10 minutes without stabbing pain near my left knee. I’d seen various orthopedists, physical therapists, and chiropractors looking for some relief. My career needed me to run a mile and a half within a certain amount of time, and it was impossible to do so with the knee pain. I saw Dr. Scotti and he immediately got to work! That first visit, he helped me understand the anatomy and underlying cause of my knee pain (aka IT Band syndrome). Once I understood what was happening, the course of treatment made so much sense. Not only did he have online videos of all the recommended exercises to treat the problem, his “healthy runner” Facebook group, Podcast, and YouTube videos held a wealth of information and supplemented my plan. I soon understood that running wasn’t just a casual hobby – it’s a sport and one that deserves dedication and focus. Without his dedication to the sport and his community, I wouldn’t have realized this! Over the next few months, I had many ups and downs – victories and failures – and even some tears! Two steps forward and one step back. Dr. Scotti always checked in between appointments and tweaked my plan if needed. By August, I was regularly running 3-4 miles with barely any pain! If I did get pain, it was because my dedication and focus were lacking – and I quickly picked it back up and overcame. I’m so thankful I took another chance at having my knee looked at and trusted someone else. I run regularly now and am really enjoying it. I can’t thank Dr. Scotti enough and would highly recommend him to anyone having trouble.”
