motion control running shoes prevent injuries in some

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health)- Runners with flat feet or feet rolling inward may want to invest in sports control running shoes to help prevent injuries, according to a study in Luxembourg. Running shoes with motion control can reduce about half of the damage, but this benefit is limited to runners whose feet roll inward, which is typical for people with flat feet. \"Our study was the first to compare shoe models for general runners with or without a motion control system, with the aim of investigating their impact on the risk of injury,\" said lead author Laurent marrissu of the Luxembourg Institute of Health. When the foot hits the ground, the movement control limits its natural rolling. The technical term for this natural roller is \"before spinning \". \"When the foot rolls too far inward, there is an overspin front, which is most common in people with low arch or flat feet. According to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers randomly assigned 386 casual runners aged between 18 and 65, wear regular running shoes or sports control the same shoes for up to six months. Shoes with motion control have a hard plastic near the middle and a hard foam on the inside of the sole. Between June and December 2014, 372 runners in the study completed 12,558 runs with a total mileage of 116,723 ( About 72,528 miles) Over 12,094 hours Overall, 25 runners were injured in the study. About 32% of the regular shoe participants were injured, while about 18% of the sports-controlled shoe participants were injured. \"It seems to indicate that, in general, in our modern buffer shoes, the minimum movement control is better than the total lack of movement control,\" Malisoux said in an email . \". But when researchers looked at the data by foot, they found that the benefit was limited to those who had their feet rolling too far inward. These people are also more likely to get hurt when wearing regular running shoes. \"If you are not in this category, you may not benefit and do not need sports control shoes,\" said Dr . \" Rahul Kapoor, an expert in sports medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Kapur said that the person with a normal pronunciation \"should choose something more neutral or something more buffered than a sports Control shoe\", who was not involved in the new study. For example, he said that a person with a natural high arch will not benefit from arch support and movement control when their feet naturally do so for them. Malisoux warns that these findings may not apply to running shoes of all models or brands. Kapur also said that people who want to know if their feet are too long before they spin need a physical therapist or an expert to make an assessment. SOURCE: bit.
