High Cushion Running Shoes Increase Impact

I can’t count how many patients have told me how much they love running in Hokas and high cushion shoes. In fact for a long time I recommended patients to run in some of the most cushion laden shoes they could find. Little did I know that I was actually causing more damage to my patient’s musculoskeletal system and running form. In this week's episode we will be discussing how high cushion running shoes cause more stress on patients' bodies while running.
