Foot strike pattern (how your foot strikes the ground) during running is key in the management of compartment syndrome. Adopting a forefoot strike landing during running was found to significantly alleviate compartment syndrome symptoms.
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
