Knee Injuries and Running

There seems to have been a sizableĀ Primus Trail Firm Ground im Test barefoot running movement as of late, but it still isn’t a widely recognized type of jogging or racing. The experiments that have been done to determine the efficacy of barefoot running to reduce the incidence of injuries (or enlarge them) have been inconclusive or broadly rejected by the health care community. Without one analyzed and proven option over the other, a person ought to be aware of the arguments for and against barefoot running, and decide for themselves. Below the various arguments are outlined. They do not necessarily reflect my personal comments.

Since the start of human history we have been running barefoot. Natural selection has given us over millions of years, an evolved foot that is supposed to be used without a leather cover. Why, in light of technological improvements, if we change that today? A very unsympathetic yet powerful procedure has provided us the best tool for running from predators and pursuing prey – the bare foot.
Running shoes compel the runner to strike the ground on their heels, developing a plethora of problem and reasons for injury. When running barefoot, one will obviously land on the forward parts of the feet and on their feet, which allows the arch of the foot and lower leg to consume the impact blow. Spectacular on the heels pushes up the jolt to the knees and buttocks, which can cause these notorious accidents as shin splints. The lower legs and arches have been formulated by character to absorb this effect – it’s understandable that moving it to other regions will cause injury.

Anti-Barefoot Running

Yes, it is true that individuals were sculpted by nature with the goal of being forced to run barefoot. Yes, running shoes alter the natural running motion in that they create the runner hit down with the heel. But did character consideration for asphalt, broken glass, and street debris? No, obviously it did not – issues like pollution and global warming certainly illustrate that natural selection never accounted for extreme human intelligence. Maybe barefoot running would be a feasible option if the places where most runner lived weren’t paved and were simply happy, sunny meadows. Regrettably this isn’t the world we live in. Teens party – glass has broken on potential running routes. Cars need to get places safely and fast – the floor is uncomfortably hard in the city. Prepare for some serious blisters and cuts if you are hell-bent on becoming a bare-foot runner.

My Stance

I, in just about all cases, would choose to run together with my trusty Asics Gel Pulse two’s on then going barefooted. I mostly run at college, together with my group. High schools + teenagers = glass. You can’t argue with math and I don’t particularly like it when glass gets lodged in my own skin. Plus I’d look like a weirdo. An exception to this is performing strides on our soccer field, which feels fine to do barefooted in hot weather.
