|Subject: ||RE: loss of coordination in leg|
I've read over the entirety of this thread and I have a few questions for those of you still experiencing this syndrome. I myself have been dealing with this for about two years and have some comments to note, but am still searching for an effective cure.
1. When exactly is this condition at its worst?
For me, tempos and races on roads as well as long runs of 16 miles or more bring it on. However, track races in spikes have yet to produce anything. Intervals are also completed without an issue.
2. What injuries did you incur prior to the onset of this condition?
I've had my run of the mill in terms of running injuries, but a stress fracture to the tibia of my affected leg immediately preceded the onset. Also, in recovering from the above fracture, I experienced ankle instability and peroneal tendonitis on the same ankle.
3. What type of shoes do you wear/what type of feet do you have?
I run in the fairly minimal Saucony Grid Fastwitch, but I also have fairly flat feet.
4. Do you find that running on alternative surfaces or in alternative shoes impacts the condition either positively or negatively?
As I stated above, I've never experienced anything in spikes or while running barefoot on soft surfaces. I actually find that moving to a sandy should of the road immediately after symptoms appear helps to keep it at bay.
5. Finally, what has proven to be YOUR most effective method of treatment?
While I have not been able to cure mine, increased mobility in my hips through exercises as well as a general strength routine and work on my lower abdominals has helped me complete workouts and races without too much difficulty. However, the condition still remains and I'm looking to rid myself of it for good.
I think answering these questions will be an effective way for us all to update this thread instead of scrolling back through page after page. Please take time to update your progress and offer any advice as you see fit.
