    Physical Therapy

I am a runner who used to run with a forefoot landing, but after about 15 years of intermittent shinsplints a physical therapist said I should heel-strike, as the instability of my forefoot strike was twisting my legs. I don't think I've had shinsplints since (about 8 years). But I have suffered from achilles tendonitis, and I can't run as fast as I used to. Oh well.
