Abstract

Long-distance running has become increasingly popular during the past decades. Many running patients pose questions to their orthopaedic surgeons regarding risks, benefits, and running techniques. This article identifies 11 running-related questions that patients may ask and provides information to help answer those questions. This review discusses data on the health benefits of running, common running injuries, the relationship between running and osteoarthritis, recommendations regarding running after orthopaedic surgery, running shoes, and other questions that may arise when treating the running athlete.
