81st Podcast

Podcast Guest “It's a long road” is the runner and physical therapist Stelios Petroutsos. Stelios is a Physiotherapist, a graduate of the Higher Technical University of Athens and holds a Masters in orthopedics & sports rehabilitation (University of South Australia – 2005).


Stelios Petroutsos is a regular member of the Sports Medicine Australia (Sports Medicine Australia – 907251) and is also registered with the UK Health Professions Council (PH 77725) and the Panhellenic Association of Physiotherapists.

His research and clinical interest focuses on applied biomechanics, which allows him to deal with a wide range of patients regardless of age, activity or pathology. In 2010, not by chance, on the 35th kilometer of the Authentic route of the Athens Classic Marathon, he founded Physio Kinetics. A versatile specialist center for musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. He himself, for the last 7 years, has been dealing exclusively with short and long distance runners.

He has worked in many rehabilitation clinics abroad, while recently, he was selected by a well-known, international manufacturer of running sports shoes for road and mountain, as one of 5 clinicians worldwide, to staff an independent scientific advisory group, for the development of their running shoes company.

Finally, he himself is an active long and ultra long distance mountain and road runner.

With Stelios, we will have an interesting discussion, since we will refer to biomechanics and the pedogram, while we will extensively analyze orthotic insoles, their use and whether they also help to avoid blisters and blackened nails.

Podcast Interview Highlights “It's a long road" by Stelios Petroutsos.

11:07 I would like to dwell a little on manufacture of orthotic insoles insole (ABC Lab). Basically what is the biomechanics that you deal with and what is the ABC Lab (Adaptive Biomechanics Concept Lab)?

24:24 Do some too run analysis and in general what instruments do you use? How is the whole process?

33:00 What is the palmogram;

40:00 Do we need personalized shoe soles? Is it for everyone? When do we put orthotics?

46:37 To orthotic or not to orthotic? What is the shoe-Orthotic interaction in the runner?

48:29 How many kilometers are these insoles and if I change shoes can I transfer the insoles to my new shoe? How many kilometers is it for?

59:47 Is there any chance that putting these insoles will also help me get rid of blisters or blackened nails?

01:03:49 Minimal or maximal shoes? Barefoot that is, or with shoes?

01:11:56 Stelio, you recently participated in two great races, I would say the main mountain running races in Greece. Taking them in chronological order, first of all congratulations on your 1st place in the long distance race Olympus Ultra, 71km long with a positive altitude difference of 5550m, on June 24, 2023 with a time of 10:56:05. Would you like to tell us a little about this race, about your experience, about your first place and how it came, but also how you managed the race in general?

01:16:34 The second race you participated in was on July 22, at Zagori in the big race of 60 km, where although you finished as we saw on social media, hand in hand with your daughter, from what you wrote things in the race did not go as you wanted and as you had planned. What exactly happened? Do you want to tell us a few words about it and what lessons did you learn?

01:21:58 In closing, would you like to tell us where and how someone can find you?
