One consistent consequence of stability running shoes with thick cushioning is that they don’t always work in restraining or reducing over-pronation (abnormal foot motions), nor are they fully effective at reducing peak shear stress and other forms of musculoskeletal loading in heel strike runners. However, a growing field of research is showing that switching from heel strike to forefoot strike running is enough to enable a more full reduction of net forces on the shins and knees.
From the start, adopting the Pose Running Technique (non-heel strike running style) can bring great outcomes in fully resolving and preventing chronic exertional compartment syndrome (throbbing lower leg pain during running) which is a condition that commonly plaques heel strike runners as compared with forefoot runners.
Forefoot running reduces compartmental syndrome by encouraging a favorable foot strike position resulting in less ankle dorsiflexion, higher step rate, lower ground reaction force, and adequate weight shift transfer on the foot.
Researchers developed a model explaining how heel strike running can result in a shattered femur.
Over-training from running may cause muscle soreness hassles, particularly morning aches and pains, but there many natural painkillers and natural anti-inflammatory compounds that are evidence-based […]
