Summary of Video

Barefoot Running is becoming very popular. It is best to do some research to learn about footwear and barefoot running techniques before you embark upon your first run. The main ideas that we want to focus on today are understanding the three foot strikes (the manner in which your foot hits or strikes the ground while running) and avoiding injury.

At Wake Forest Chiropractic, we have seen patients who have become very excited about trying Barefoot Running, and that is great. We would rather see these people on the trail than in a doctor’s office. The primary injuries we are seeing from Barefoot Running are:

  1. Plantar Fasciitis
  2. Metatarsalgia – pain in the ball of the foot,  just behind the toes
  3. Achilles Tendonitis

The three basic foot strikes are called:

  1. Heel strike
  2. Forefoot strike
  3. Midfoot or flatfoot strike
