How to Stay Safe Spring Marathon Season

Spring-Marathon-Season-in-phoenix

Every useful discussion about running touches on the need to reduce shock in order to stay safe & improve efficiency.

According to Dr. Doperak with Arizona Orthotics, “Spring marathon season is that time of year we see a lot of unnecessary foot, ankle, knee, hip and back injuries.”

During a 26.2 mile run your feet strike the ground around 37,500 times, at a force of 3 to 4 times body-weight.

Poor shock absorption is the most common cause of injury. 

Even after running technique is mastered, one source of constant stress remains – GRAVITY.

“The way the body handles stress every time the foot hits the ground is always an issue,” explains Dr. Dave. “We are truly excited to offer a precise and effective way to combat gravity.”

How to Stay Safe Spring Marathon Season

1. Have the feet checked for signs of improper shock absorption.

Corns, callouses, foot shape changes, forefoot widening, flat feet… ALL Positive Signs of a bad spring – change that!

2. Optimize how the feet handle gravity, part I.

If your running technique needs help – work on it.

Good technique means you can run barefoot on concrete without a problem.

Consider a running coach or practice some of the drills offered by Pose Tech before hitting the road again.

3. Optimize how your feet handle gravity, part II.

If your foot is a poor spring – fix it!
