In the American College of Sports Medicine’s “Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise” journal, Sarah Ridge, a professor of exercise science at Brigham Young University in Provo, was asked by Dr. Douglas Brown, a radiologist in Orem, Utah, to help explain why runners wearing minimalist shoes were showing injuries not seen when they ran in classic running shoes. Using MRI, runners, after running in minimalist shoes for 10 weeks, developed bone marrow edema. This is a sure sign the foot was taking a beating. Enough said!
If you experience any form of foot or ankle pain during or after running, contact Schaumburg Podiatrist Dr. Robert Steinberg to schedule a consultation. Dr. Steinberg has over 35 years of experience diagnosing and treating running injuries.
