How to prevent running injuries, a medical explanation

Finally, a medical explanation for why runners get injured. And, even better, treatment options, a plan to eradicate the true cause of running injuries, and an explanation of why barefoot running is CLEARLY not the answer (if you haven’t figured it out by now, this is a joke).

Check out what esteemed research scientist and physician, Dr. Musculoskeletal has to say about a condition that affects over 99% of all runners, and over 99.1% of all humans. It’s a silent epidemic that clearly must be addressed. And with your help and support, we can find a cure for this crippling disease. I’m hoping that Dr. Musculoskeletal quickly establishes a foundation, a clinic, and a non-profit research facility so that we can, once and for all, eliminate the condition he calls “Congenital Short Hard Heel Syndrome.”

It wasn’t until I saw this video that I realized I suffer from the condition. And with no known cure at the moment, my only option is to adopt an unusual forefoot-strike gait when I run. Sure, doing so has eliminated my various running injuries, and helped me develop arches in my life-long flat feet, but that’s not the issue. The issue is that millions, perhaps billions of children are born with this condition… and nobody is doing anything to prevent it.

Let’s start now.

  • This is sort of a weird funny… But let me make sure I understand the basics. 100% of all healthy humans have congenital short hard heel syndrome. Everyone else either has a worse case, or don’t have feet. The only currently know effective treatment is a placebo effect inducing cushioned prosthetic heel extension most commonly known as the running shoe. They are very careful to not have it actually proven, or the placebo effect will be ruined, barefoot is snake oil salesmanship, blah, blah, blah. Right?

    The best way to stay healthy imo is to IGNORE many medical professionals, govt. appointed experts with their noses up corporate america’s big bucks butts, and many people in general.

    The same mindset, political system, greed and general idiosy that brought us the global financial meltdown/mortgage crisis has been bringing us an escalating health care crisis for decades.

    Who do you trust?

    I like to find the more senior endurance athletes, authors, senior MD’s and scientists who have proven over decades their research/results. Some good ones… Dr Colin Campbell, Dr John McDougall, Ruth Heidrich, Danny Dreyer and John Robbins.

    The senior advisors at Govt. agencies often have their heads so far up corporate asses they can’t see past their own self interests. So now they want to keep our youth on prescription meds earlier and earlier.

    Besides, I don’t need Dr Muskuloskeletol to tell me I’m defective…I have a wife and three daughters, all way smarter than I…
