In today's program Dr. Reminga talks about the important role our feet play when running for sport or enjoyment. Running is a great cardio workout for the body, but pounding the pavement over the course of a long run is incredibly harsh on the feet. Every stride taken while running applies a force of three to four times the runner's body weight on knees, ankles and feet. During a 10-mile run, a runner's feet make 15,000 strides, translating to thousands of pounds of force on each foot! Running places incredible demands on the feet. With each of your feet pounding the ground some 800 times per mile, it's no wonder that they feel pain on occasion. At the same time... Running has a way of becoming addictive once you experience those first few highs. Dr. Reminga tells us... "Any structural flaws in the feet or slight imbalances in stride will eventually result in achy feet or injury to the feet and ankles that may end a much anticipated running season. Keep in mind that for runners... the feet are more vulnerable to injury than any other part of the body." He also talks about the ways in which the feet can be vulnerable while running. He talks about shin splints, runner's knee, achilles tendinitis, Morton's neuroma, and plantar fasciitis for example. He also provides tips for runners to help avoid injury. Running is a great sport for many age groups. If you want to start a running program or you have been running for awhile, Dr. Reminga will shed some light on the sport of running and how it affects the feet.
