#739 When to add weight bearing exercise with stress reaction

Today’s episode comes from a YouTube viewer who posted a question,

“I have a low risk grade stress reaction in my posterior tibia. Interestingly, there is some research discussing the benefits of weight bearing bone building exercise once tolerated pain free, like hops jumps and step ups. Do you have any advice on when and how to integrate these types of exercises into a rehabilitation program?”

When is it okay to add weight bearing exercises when you’ve had a bone injury like a stress reaction?

That is what we are talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.

#725 Does callus reduction decrease risk of plantar plate sprain?

I got a specific question about a recent episode on calluses in runners.

You may have checked out the episode on the three callus patterns that I see in runners at high risk for getting a plantar plate injury.

Does callus reduction reduce your risk or decrease the risk that you’re going to get a plantar plate sprain?

Well, that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run Podcast.
