Hello everybody! I while ago i was asking questions about shin splints. Anyways i still haven't got rid of them. I ice them after every practice. Anyways i was thinking about going to see a sports doctor but it is $116 just for the visit becuase i don't have insurance. I don't want to spend all that money for some doctor to tell me to ice and rest. I am just tired of the pain and having to wrap every time i run anywhere. Thanks Josh

Learn how to run properly. www.posetech.com

The book and DVD will cost about half your doctor's visit charge.

There was alot of info and i think i might need to see a video to completely understand the tecnique. They have a video for $50 that they says will teach you everything you need. My question is it worth the money? Thanks Josh

Josh,

the video is OK. It contains all the drills needed to make the transition to POSE form. POSE takes a similar approach to running like Total Immersion to swimming - you know, lots of little small drills to teach you how correct form feels, then put it together.

However, it still seems to take a long time for most people to completely make the change - about 6 months to a year is what I remember from the time when I was more active on the POSE forum, even for people who have visited the POSE seminar.

If you want to go the cheap route, read "Running Fast and Injury Free" from Gordon Pirie first (available for free on http://www.gordonpirie.com/) - if you have access to some competent runners (e.g., cross country champs at your local high school), that may be all you need.

Converting to correct running technique is worth the effort. However, take your time. Forcing the adjustment will result in signficant pain.

Cheers,

Christian
