Radio Health Journal—April 16, 2017
Radio Health Journal interviewed HSS physiatrist Vijay B. Vad, MD on how the everyday runner can stay fit and not harm joints.
Dr. Vad recently published "The New Rules of Running" which outlines a program for recreational runners.
In the interview, he suggested slow running for shorter distances is better for your joints. "Slow running avoids a lot of the negative side effects of very hard, very fast running. It really minimizes what we call the 'sheer loads.' Sheer loads...are uneven loads and the joints really don’t like that because you can start getting arthritis in the knee joint."
