This year I want to be injury free

Something as simple as the way you stand can make you more prone to injury – yet many of us pay little attention to our feet, the masterpieces that enable us to get up and move. With more than 200,000 nerve endings and more than 25 per cent of your body’s bones, it’s a very complex system, with 70 per cent of the information your brain receives being sent via your feet.

Movement is a skill, and the foundation of skilled movement is proprioceptive feedback. Information from your skin, muscles and joints (mainly in your feet) is fed back to the brain to allow your body to adapt to the biomechanical loads and environmental cues experienced while moving.

By learning to walk (or stand for that matter) before you run, you can help to enable your body and brain to fulfil their evolutionary role: to walk and run efficiently, on demand and without injury throughout your lifetime. Sounds simple right? So why are up to 80 per cent of us injuring ourselves every year? The short answer is that we’ve forgotten how to run.
