This is an informal survey of running injuries and their treatments. It should take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. It is NOT a scientific study. No scientists were harmed in the making of this study. You could spend your whole long run spotting methodology flaws.
So why am I doing this and why should you bother filling it out? Because some of the information that this survey looks for has not yet been the subject of complete or conclusive research. And while that research will hopefully happen in the future, it may not happen in time for your next injury. In the meantime, the survey can provide some potentially useful information by getting responses from a large number of people. And if, for example, it turns out that an overwhelming majority of those people had better results for treating a particular injury a particular way, that may be worth considering in planning a rehab program.
After I have all the responses, I will make an analysis of the results available to everyone and you can decide what, if anything, you would like to do with them. Seeing as this is an entirely unscientific study, I have picked a random minimum number of responses I need before I will evaluate the results, and that number is 500. The sooner I get there the sooner we can all see if there is anything interesting to be learned, so please convince all your injured and formerly injured friends to fill out the survey as well (you can remind the currently injured that they have nothing better to do with all their newfound spare time).
Not sure if your injury qualifies as a running injury? It qualifies if (a) it happened, or you first noticed it, while you were on a run, or (b) you have another reason to think that the injury was caused by your running (you'll have a chance to explain the circumstances of the injury).
Because the survey looks for some specific information about dates and activities performed on those dates, it would ideally be completed regarding a recent injury, so that you can remember much of the relevant information. However, you can complete the survey with regard to an injury that happened at any time, leaving blank any questions that you don't remember the answers to.
Please read the instructions carefully before you fill out the survey. And by "carefully," I do mean a good bit more carefully than you would listen to a race director's last-minute starting line instructions!
