Impact Reduction Through Changing to Midfoot Strike Pattern vs Low Drop Footwear

There has been considerable interest recently in altering running technique to reduce impact loads and loading rates in the belief that this might reduce injury rates. There was a recent study I previously wrote about and now there is this one : Impact reduction through long-term intervention in recreational runners: midfoot strike pattern versus low-drop/low-heel height footwear Marlène Giandolini, Nicolas Horvais, Yohann Farges, Pierre Samozino, Jean-Benoît Morin European Journal of Applied Physiology April 2013 Impact reduction has become a factor of interest in the prevention of running-related injuries such as stress fractures. Currently, the midfoot strike pattern (MFS) is thought as a potential way to decrease impact
