Running creates far greater ground reaction forces than walking. These are forces that need to be absorbed by the feet and lower limbs. And imbalance in lower limb and foot biomechanics or repetitive overuse can cause significant pain and injury in the feet, ankles, legs, hips or even the spine.
Pain is an unwelcomed warning sign that may indicate that all is not well with lower limb biomechanics and posture.
