According to experts in the running shops I’ve visited when buying new shoes over the past few years I’m a moderate overpronator and have bought stability type shoes as a result.
Recently I found out I have quite weak hip muscles – I’ve been getting occasional pain on my left side, occasional sore hip/side/lower left back muscles.
As a result, I’ve been making a bit of effort to strengthen up that area recently, a few exercises and stretches every couple of days - I think it could be benefitting already.
I’m now wondering whether stability shoes could be compounding the problem? They stop your knees/legs collapsing inwards don’t they – but maybe also stop your hip working and doing the stabilising? Maybe neutral shoes next would be best? What do you think?
I run about 10-15km a week usually in about 2-3 sessions, and have been running for quite a few years. I’ve had achilles problems in the past but seem to be over them now, and knees are generally OK!
