I'm loving this information. I wish I had seen this when I first started running. I know I said to watch the other video in my last post, but if you're limited on time, check these out please! This is the definitive scientific presentation that I've seen thus far. Brava, Dr. Davis.
Video one: heel striking, midfoot striking, forefoot striking, tibial g-forces, stride turnover and injury rate, shoes and their tendencies to increase pronation, etc.
Video 2: Cushioning in shoes and the related stiffness in joints, landing impacts based on hardness of surface, price of shoes/ related injury rates, plantar faciitis and foot strength, why do podiatrists treat the feet the way they do?
Video 3: How humans are structured to run, running injury distribution and rates, case studies, "If we were meant to run, why do we get injured doing it?"
Video 4: Question/Answer
She also reiterates the need for people to educate themselves and take it slow when going barefoot or minimalist. Hooray!
