Unsuitable Footwear Increases the Risk of Injury While Jogging
Since during the run, the athlete, as a rule, lands on the heels, it is important that the force of this impact on the ground is compensated by special footwear. Otherwise, such permanent trauma can have negative consequences in the future.
Researchers from the University of Exeter evaluated 29 runners for the risk of injury and found that those who used shoes with a stiffer sole had a significantly higher risk of injury to the heel and foot, compared to those who were wearing normal sneakers.
This factor should be taken into account when you purchase equipment for running, making a choice in favor of softer shoes or those able to absorb the force of vertical impact on the ankle when the foot touches the ground. The researchers also found out. that the formation of the habit of landing on the toe during running is useful to reduce the risk of injury.
