Everyone who runs wants to know what makes the best running shoe. How your foot hits the ground is very important when you run.
Good shoes can prevent knee, hip and back pain injuries.
The difficult thing about shoes is that what makes the shoe good for one person makes it bad for another.
So how do you pick the best shoe for you?
I was talking to this woman, Mary, who is in her 40s. She recently started to have lower back pain. As I was talking to Mary about her history she told me about how she takes care of her mother. Her mother started to have severe back pain many years ago that requires her to get corticosteroids shots every few months depending on when the pain returns. Unfortunately, for Mary’s mother when the pain returns she is unable to get out of bed, up from a chair or walk across the room without assistance from Mary or another family member.
This cycle of doctors appointment and shots every few months starting in her 40s caused Mary to feel overwhelmed. That’s how she found me. After downloading my back pain ebook she felt comfortable coming in for an evaluation to see what if anything could be done for her back.
Did you just find out or do you suspect that you have one leg longer than the other? That odd thing to be told about your body. You question if people can look at you and see that one side is higher than the other or if you walk funny...all sorts of things can run though you mind.
There are 2 different types of leg length discrepancies.
