It can be seen from the article that running barefoot can be good for health. On the one hand, running barefoot has a health advantage, and on the other hand, it benefits the health of the joints. To stay healthy, we must make a running plan that works for us.
Foot and Ankle Research
The magazine “Foot and Ankle Research” has published a new study and found that when people wear shoes, their strides are much greater than that of being barefoot. There will be more force in the heel when there is a touchdown on the ground from the foot. One of the Harvard University Human Evolutionary Biology professors named Daniel E Li Boman has completed the study. It was found through comparisons between elementary and middle school students who used to wear shoes in cities and rural students who used to walk to school barefoot that when city students ran, the touchdown point of the foot would focus on the heel when the foot touched the ground. The touchdown point of the rural student’s foot, however, will mainly focus on the front of the foot. They will not only produce a clear impact, but will also touch down on the ground lighter.
This research shows that running barefoot is better for the human body. Because there will be less damage while there is less impact force. Scientists believe that humans were born to be suitable for running barefoot. Some hazards, such as stress fractures and muscle or tendon injuries, will be naturally increased with slightly inappropriate actions, so this method is very important. Many people want to worry about a wound that running will bring to the knee, and then induce arthritis. A study has been released by America’s “National Public Radio” in recent days that it has found that running benefits mutual health instead. Swedish researchers have selected a group of people who are at risk of arthritis to walk every day, and another group of people who will not run.
NMR imaging technology shows that the health of the runners’ cartilage has been significantly improved. This shows that running is conducive to joint health. It was said by David Phil Johnson who is a Boston University School of Medicine epidemiologist that some cartilage loss will occur each year when people reach a certain age, for example, forty. There will be cartilage and healthy joints if there is nothing wrong with your knees and in a week you can run five to six times at the right pace. But it should be noted that if your knee has been injured, or you have received knee surgery and run with the wrong posture, then your risk of arthritis increases.
In second place, people were better off not running intensely if they exceeded nine kilograms. Or it will force the knee to become inflamed, forming bone spurs and accelerating cartilage loss. It is correct to run in the posture of the head up and with the back straight and relaxed. The knee joint should bend slightly when the foot falls to the ground. There has been exactly ninety degrees for the arm to bend and spread the arm to the greatest extent. T further, we must choose to run the program, appropriate. In the basic stage, for example, we can run five kilometers with ten to twelve weeks, run ten kilometers with six to eleven weeks in and the intermediate stage and run ten kilometers with eleven weeks in the senior stage.
