Discussing the health benefits of barefoot adaptations and how they transcend as good forefoot running mechanics.
Research has shown that barefoot running immediately improves ankle stability which directly optimized work and impact load balance on the leg, thereby preventing dangerous shifts in loading on the knees and hips as compared with thickly cushioned running shoes.
Find out how certain types of footwear increases plantar pressure during running.
Because running shoes interferes with proprioception, my focus is on how reduced sensory traffic effects proprioceptor density and signaling in shod runners.
Barefoot advocates, Dr. Daniel Lieberman and Dr. Steven Robbins go head-to-head on the evolution of running shoes.
What is the proper way to run? Heel strike or forefoot strike?
