MossRehab Runner's Clinic
APRIL 26, 2013
Is there a proper way to run?
With summer upon us, it is a question that may be on the mind of a lot of runners. MossRehab physical therapist John Feeley and podiatrist Ira Meyers, D.P.M., are looking for answer. Feeley points out that there has been a lot of conversation in the running world about whether landing on the mid-foot as a runner is healthier than landing on the heel or toe. Feeley and Meyers are both runners and experts on running.
To get the bottom of the matter, Feeley and Meyers are launching a study, and they could use your help.
The two researchers are recruiting people who run about 1,000 miles per year - 20 miles per week - and have been doing that for at least two years. The runners will be video taped in the MossRehab Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory and then analyzed in slow motion. In particular, Feeley and Meyers want to see if there is any correlation between gait and history of injury.
