Is it possible to need crutches from running a lot on the treadmill?

Is there any injuries that you would need crutches for just by running on the treadmill? I'm asking out of curiosity.

  • You can get stress fractures in the hips or shins

  • I don't believe so, unless the had osteoperosis or something and the contact on the knees was enough to damage it. Otherwise if they fell and scraped there knee to the point of damaging muscle (which is extremely unlikely) they may be aided by crutches. Hope this helps.

  • Any repetitive stress injury you can get from running, you can get on a treadmill.

  • You probably just have muscle cramps?

      No, I'm asking you if there are any injuries that require crutches. Stop assuming that my legs hurt. Did you read the description at all? I'm asking out of curiosity.

      If you fall or sprain your ankles while doing so then maybe, but if you were just running... then probably not

      Okay, thank you.
