The shoulder is an amazingly mobile joint that allows you to wave to your friends, throw a football, perform sun salutations in yoga, and attempt to get to that “just out of reach” itch on your back.  However, all that mobility comes at a price – the shoulder is inherently unstable!  It needs a very…

Having a shoe that is the incorrect length, width, or category of support can lead to many classic running injuries such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, patellofemoral pain syndrome,…

SHOE INSERTS & ORTHOTICS FOR RUNNERS

It is springtime! Even though Vermont just got about 6 inches of snow this week, I am staying hopeful that summer is on its way!  As the weather starts to improve, many of you will be getting outside and going for runs. Running is an excellent way to stay fit, improve cardiovascular health, and tire…
