Many people ask me….So when can I return to running?  Well, here is your answer and this is everything you need to reach before you return to running.

1. No pain and no signs of inflammation.

2. Normal flexibility and biomechanics in your legs.

3. Able to balance on each leg in a wobble free manner > 20 seconds.

4. Ability to progress through the big toe while keeping the foot straight during single leg calf raises.

5. Ability to perform standing exercises with good neuromuscular control.

6. Ability to hop on each leg with good control.

7. Appropriately selected shoes prior to initiating the return to running  program.
