The causes of foot injuries in running are factors which are influenced by the distribution of load, including anatomical factors, body weight, shoes, surface, training program and technique.
To better understand this is to understand that each element needs to be balanced if one is to avoid injury while participating in sport and in our instance running.
Anatomical factors which Cause Foot Injuries
- Shoes – Footwear
- Training Factors
- Load Intensity
All the above factors can contribute to injuries in one form or another. We will break down the various areas and provide data accordingly.
