The Perfect Running Form Exposed

When I started running I was told by my coach that I needed to run with perfect form. Specifically, running with my feet landing forefoot, leaning forward over my toes, at 180 steps per minute and acting as if I were falling forward while I ran. After multiple injuries, a myriad of running patients and in depth research I can tell you there IS NOT a perfect running form. However, there IS a perfect running form for a specific runner’s anatomical make up and injury predisposition. These week's episode is about the perfect running form and how to apply a running gait analysis to find the perfect form for each patient.
