#884 Which comes first after plantar plate heals running or dress shoes

I got an interesting question from a runner who had a plantar plate injury.

This runner had a long course of sort of misdiagnosis, mistreatment and various plantar plate “misadventures.”

But when we started working together, he started to do some specific things to improve quickly, and he is doing great now.

He asked:

“Which comes first after my plantar plate sprain heals, will I be running, or will I be wearing dress shoes?”

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

In fact, foot pain consistent with plantar fasciitis accounts for about 40% of all visits to the podiatrists in the United States each year.

#497 Which running shoes show running form wear pattern best?

This question came up from somebody in the coaching groups who wanted to make sure that she wasn’t going to get re-injured.

Today on the Doc On The Run podcast, we’re talking about which running shoes show running form wear patterns best.

#460 Never listen to a coach wearing clown shoes

This episode actually comes from a YouTube comment. This runner saw an image from when I was running a 50 mile trail race wearing Hoka trail running shoes.

He said, “I would never take advice from a coach, a biomechanics expert, or a running injury expert who was wearing Hokas.”

Would you take your running coach seriously if he was wearing clown shoes?

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

#442 Check your shoe when you have pain!

This episode actually comes from a visit that I had with a runner where I was checking her foot because she had heel pain. This runner happens to also be a physician. She assumed that she was having plantar fasciitis because she had some pain in her heel when she was running, and after run, she would noticed that she had a little bit of pain when she was walking around.
She runs a lot and she started having this occasional weird twinge of pain here and there and then she got heel pain. So she asked me to look at her foot and see what I could figure out.
Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast, we’re talking about how you really need to check your shoes whenever you have pain from running.
