WELCOME

Welcome to RunningShoeDoctor.com.  The goal of this blog is to spread as much information about running shoes and how they can be used as both a prevention and treatment of common injuries.  As a podiatrist and avid runner, I want to answer commonly asked questions that I hear in my own practice and eventually do reviews of different running sneakers from my unique perspective.  If you’ve ever had questions about how you run, the different types of running shoes, or what types of shoes you should be wearing, then you’re in the right place.  This blog is constantly evolving, so if you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to comment.
