Factors associated with Achilles tendinopathy and MTSS

Are duration or excursion of rearfoot eversion associated to the development of injuries?

When compared to healthy controls, runners with Achilles tendinopathy (AT) and medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) showed greater tibial varus, reduced dorsiflexion ROM, increased rearfoot eversion at heel-off and increased duration of eversion during their running stance phase. These measures may be helpful in identifying which runners are at increased risk of developing these injuries.
