  • NEW YORK PODIATRIST STATES THAT FRACTURES ARE WORST CONSEQUENCE OF OVERTRAINING

 

 

 

 

Podiatric surgeon Dr. Jacqueline Sutera explains what could happen to our feet if we run too much and over-train for that next half marathon. "Running is a super-high-impact sport, and there's a lot of body weight with every step that you take. It increases by about seven times your body weight with every step that you take when you're running."
 
"You can develop heel spurs, plantar fasciitis ,tendinitis, stress fractures, knee pain, hip pain, back pain — the list goes on and on. I think fractures are the worst thing because it really takes a long time to heal. For a lot of tendon issues and plantar fasciitis, those can  heal in a couple of weeks, but once you fracture your foot, you're talking six to eight weeks of not running. And this leads to a lot of tears in my office," says Sutera.
