If you have a foot injury, is it on your dominant foot or the other or both?

Do you think we typically work harder on our dominant foot thus cause more injury on it?

I'm assuming you mean "dominant" foot. Embarassed

Ironically, most of my foot issues have been on my non-dominant foot, so its possible that you put more stress on the non-dominant foot. But thats totally my experience alone.

Ha...that's what I meant in the other thread...it is just a theory of mine. I have not had issues with my feet (knocking on wood)...

Almost all of my injuries have been on the strong side on my body. I rarely am injured on the other side.

I've also wondered if injuries are more prevalent on the dominant side. I'd be interested if there have been any studies on this.

Even a minor injury on one side can cause an injury on the other side because of overcompensation. I'm learning more and more that you have to take all your little aches and pains seriously so they don't turn into big aches and pains.

Let's see... My left groin gave out while training for my first marathon. My left hip tends to be a recurring niggle. My left glute hated me last Sunday. My right hamstring seized after my first marathon. Both feet have their occasional complaints. I'm right-footed, left-handed. Dual-brained.
