Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast, we’re talking about how runners should take note of Doctor’s F.E.A.R. What is Doctor’s F.E.A.R.? What I’m referring to here is an acronym. It’s, False Evidence Appearing Real: F-E-A-R. False evidence is really just something, such as an opinion, which is presented as fact, and then agreed […]
“First, do no harm.” This basic idea is at the foundation of medicine. Doctor’s are sworn to the Hippocratic Oath, and they want you to get better. Even if that means preventing your form harming yourself when you are injured.
As a runner you may feel like the very treatment offered to you will permanently harm your ability to train, run and perform…forever.
But there is way to turn this idea around and get the doctor to buy-in to your concerns.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast we’re talking about how the Hippocratic Oath can help you get back to running sooner.
Remember, injuries aren’t caused by running too much!
Running injuries are caused by applying too much stress to specific structures like the fourth metatarsal bone, Achilles tendon, peroneal tendon or your posterior tibial tendon when you’re running on a slope or changing direction.
If you want to reduce the risk of getting over training injury, mix things up and run the other way.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast we’re talking about about why you should reduce your risk for injury and run the other way.
Which is more likely to cause an injury….running fast, or running slow?
Explosive speed workouts can put you at risk of injury. Running at your limit can put you at risk of injury. But believe it or not, if you spend too much time running slow, you may actually increase your risk of an overtraining injury.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast we’re talking about about how slow may be your injury speed.

Doctors often tell runners to stop running when when they get a neuroma. Sometimes doctors even tell […]
Lots of running injuries are aggravated by bending of the toes. Plantar plate sprains, sesamoiditis, and Morton’s neuroma all get irritated when you bend the toes too much while you run. If you have any of these conditions it may help if you add some stiffness to your running shoe.
One way to help decrease pain in the big toe joint and the ball of the foot is too add a carbon fiber insert to the running shoe.
Today on the Doc On the Run Podcast, we’re talking whether or not you should add carbon fiber stiffening insoles to your running shoes.

Are your current running shoes putting you at risk for a stress fracture?
One common reason for too much bone stress is that a runner didn’t have enough cushioning because they were using a shoe that was too stiff, or wasn’t padded enough, or soft enough, and they were running on concrete or asphalt.
That run, in those particular running shoes, beat up the bone too much and then the bone started to crack and develop into a stress fracture.
Today on the Doc On the Run Podcast, we’re talking about what the worst running shoes for stress fractures.
