#881 Can I run in zero drop shoes after plantar plate sprain heals?

I was just on a call with a runner who had a plantar plate injury that has been bothering him for about a year and a half.

We did a series of calls to talk about some changes in his treatment that could get him moving in the right direction.

He asked me a great question when I was on a call with him this morning.

He said:

“Can I run in zero drop shoes once it is really healed? Not today, but like when it is really, really healed and it is stronger and all that kind of stuff.”

I said, “You can do whatever you want, you just have to be willing to pay the consequences.”

Can I run in zero drop shoes after a plantar plate sprain heals?

Well, that is a great question and that is what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.

Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast, we’re talking about how dress shoes with a long toe box can actually work as a lever against your plantar plate.
