  • NZ PODIATRIST: RUNNERS SHOULD BE EXAMINED BEFORE TRYING BAREFOOT RUNNING

TRAINER JAMES KUEGLER ADVISES HIS CLIENTS TO START WITH A 1 KM RUN IN BARE FEET FIRST, NO MATTER HOW FIT THEY ARE.  "THE MUSCLES ARE STRETCHING OUT AND DOING MORE WORK WITH EVERY STEP.  YOU'RE ESSENTIALLY USING MUSCLES THAT HASN'T BEEN USED BEFORE."  PODIATRIST, DR. BRUCE BAXTER, PRESEDENT OF PODIATRY NEW ZEALAND, AGREES PEOPLE NEED TO BE CAREFUL.  "IT'S NOT JUST A QUESTION OF TAKING YOUR SHOES OFF, BUT WHETHER YOU'RE RUNNING IS ACTUALLY BETTER WITHOUT SHOES,"  SAYS BAXTER.

IN MANY CASES IT IS POSSIBLE TO IMPROVE POSTURE AND TECHNIQUE WITHOUT REMOVING YOUR SHOES ENTIRELY.  AND PEOPLE WITH FOOT PROBLEMS SHOULD BE WARY OF DITCHING ALL SUPPORT.  "THE MOST SENSIBLE THING TO DO FIRST IS TO BE EXAMINED FIRST," SAYS BAXTER.
