Barefoot running

Hi!  I hope you all have had a great summer weekend!  Many of my patients inquire with me about proper running footwear.  I have been a trail runner for a long time (over 15 years) and both my experience as a runner and chiropractor support the theories of minimalist footwear when it comes to running.  Biomechanically, studies show that to absorb the impact of each foot fall properly, we should land on the ball of our feet rather than our heels.  Many running shoes are designed with the heel lifted a few (4-10mm) mm higher than the forefoot.  Basically, I tell paitents that this is similar to running in hight heels (and as much many of us hate to admit it, high heels are REALLY hard on the body, increasing the lumbar curve and adding compressive force to the spine).  So, my recommendation when it comes to running shoes, is to at minimum, find a shoe that is comfortable, but also has 0-4mm of height difference from front to back.  That will allow you to land more on the ball of the foot, instead of the heel, and hopefully, minimize your risk of injury.  I know I love to trail run, and making smart running shoes choices can be the difference between many years of joyful running vs. a short lived and painful running journey. 
Happy Trails, Glenda

Thanks for mentioning the advantages of using the disposable palette. Palette is an essential tool for the artist to mix the colors and if it can be recycled, then it is a great news. Making it by your own should save that extra dollar going out of your pocket.
