#291 How oxidative stress slows running injury recovery

I was on stage at the International Foot & Ankle Meeting in Lake Tahoe this weekend and was giving a presentation designed to help doctors understand why running isn’t the problem with running injuries….why they as doctors shouldn’t always tell runners to “stop running” as a way to decrease stress.

Running is only one form of stress. Running is biomechanical stress.

But one of the most helpful strategies in recovering runners is managing oxidative stress.

So, I gave a brief Biochemistry 101 explanation of what “oxidative stress” means, why it is so important and why recovering runners need ti think about it.

Today on the Doc On The Run podcast, we’re talking about how oxidative stress slows running injury recovery.
