Biomechanical factors in common running injuries

Which biomechanical factors are associated to common running injuries?

Given the high prevalence of achilles tendinopathy (AT) and medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), the current study strove to clarify the ongoing debate regarding the influence of rear foot eversion in a running population.

The authors concluded time spent in eversion through the stance phase rather than eversion velocity or excursion was most influential and a possible predictor for those at risk for developing the condition.

The above findings lend support to the argument of the maladaptive effects of prolonged pronation in the development of AT and MTSS. The authors support an increased focus on pathomechanics of these injuries in the push-off phase over the previously regarded loading phase of stance.
