If you want to know more about running injuries, you're in the right place. For the most common injury warning signs be sure to read upon our expert guide on how to head off injuries at the earliest stage.

This is an archive of Bodyworks, a series of columns that ran for two years in Runner's World UK. It was written by RW Medical Advisor Dr Patrick Milroy, who has been at the centre of UK sports medicine for longer than even he can remember, and is team doctor of the English Athletic Association.

Bodyworks kicked off by explaining the basics of the runner's anatomy. It then gave a definitive guide to the universal running first-aid principle of RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation). And then came the injury guide:

Foot Injuries

Ankle-area Injuries

Lower-leg injuries

Knee injuries

Upper-leg injuries

Hip injuries
