s Debra, made me feel much more positive. Changing shoes and became disheartened a little that it was just years of damage playing sport and not much hope but just needed some good advice and a bit of motivation.
I recently had an injection under x ray for some inflammation in my ankle caused by overpronation. I never had a problem when I ran in Inov8s off road or when running on road. But since trying Merrell mix masters minimalist shoes I got swelling and pain till I had to stop. Not run since March and finally had treatment last week.
Orthotics were recommended but I really do not wont something so permanent to cover the problem if it's possile to improve the overpronation and arch.
Goodluck Holgs with the recovery. Hoping to start running again in next few weeks now ankle been sorted. If anyones interested I have a pair of Inov-8 Trailroc 255, bought from Pete Blands 24/11/2012 and only used 3 times. Perfect condition £30. Boxed with original receipt of purchase to anyone around Morecambe area.....size 10.
