I just got off the phone with an elite athlete recently who asked a great question.
He called me and said, “I have custom orthotics and I know they support my foot better. So the question is, can I use a broader range of shoes?”
What he really wants to know is whether or not he can ONLY use motion control shoes.
He was really asking, “Since I have an unstable foot that’s now stabilized by the custom orthotic supporting the foot, does that mean that I can wear shoes other than something like a true motion control shoe?”
Can I wear softer shoes when running with a custom orthotic?
Well, that’s a great question, and that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.View Details »
One of the things about getting an MRI has to do with timing of the injury.
What do I mean by that?
Well, it means timing in terms of when the MRI is done relative to how long it has been since you actually beat it up and injured that structure.
When is an MRI most reliable for a bone running injury like a stress fracture?
Well, that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc The On Run Podcast.View Details »
