Running Gait Retraining: External or Internal Factors

This article clearly shows that runners who need gait re-training may initially benefit from internal cues (like try running more flatfooted), but evidently need external cues (like using mirror training in ballet or cadence monitors on their smartphone while running). As a podiatrist, I have tried both, although mainly use internal cues like Chi Running to land more midfoot and avoid slamming their heels or irritating their forefeet. Cadence monitors set around 180 per minute may be ideal to get a biomechanically sound stride. When we want to change landing position, orthotic devices may act like external cues to them.
