Aug 12th, 2015 by runnersconnect at 12:01 am

Dr. Steve Pribut will be bringing something new to the table. A Podiatrist based in Washington D.C., he mainly specializes in Podiatric Medicine and Surgery. Aside from that he is also a well-known expert of Podiatric Sports Medicine and Biomechanics. In short, he is an expert on a variety of runner’s injury and its treatment.

Aside from his profession, he has also served as the President of the District of Columbia Podiatric Medical Association for 4 years. He was also the past president of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine (AAPSM) and he was also on the advisory board of Runner’s World Magazine. He also served as chair of the AAPSM Athletic Shoe Committee for 5 years, so the right shoe is also another area that he specializes in. 

At the present, he is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the George Washington University Medical Center. And because of his extensive knowledge and interests about bone injury and treatment, he has worked with many Olympic Athletes in different sports.

We will be covering some very interesting topics that include: 

  • What are the most common running injuries and how to handle them?
  • Why motion-control shoes may be causing your running injuries?
  • How E-centric exercises actually may be prolonging your recovery?
  • Why a heel fit strike has been linked to reduce the risk of osteoarthritis?

We also discussed the bad running habits developed by runners that can be addressed by simply getting coached on how to do it right or by joining a running club. Dr. Pribut also mentioned the studies he made on the correct movement of the arms and legs when running because he also does computer programming. He also talked about his medical practice and recommendations about the correct warm-up exercises before doing any speed running. Paying attention to the pain in your body was also mentioned and when it’s the right time need to see a doctor. 

The importance of getting the right shoes for the sport and the correct frequency of changing your running shoes was discussed. Tips on how to increase endurance and reduce injuries. Another interesting topic was an insight into how running can reduce the risk of osteoporosis. And on a parting note – as runner’s we always need to move forward.
