CNA: Do running shoes affect injury risk?

injuryAccording to a recent study, researchers found that runners who wore shoes with minimal cushioning significantly reduce the rate of injury. The lead researcher, Dr Hannah Rice of the University of Exeter, said: “So many people use running as a means of reducing the risk of chronic diseases, but about three-quarters of runners typically get injured in a year.”

“Footwear is easily modifiable, but many runners are misguided when it comes to buying new trainers. This research shows that running in minimal shoes and landing on the balls of your feet reduces loading rates and may therefore reduce the risk of injury.”
