Runners sought for knee pain study

Researchers at the University of Roehampton are looking to recruit 18-55 year old male and female runners for a study aimed at reducing knee pain.

The researcher Andy May-Heggie explains that they are currently running a gait retraining study that is aimed at reducing/eradicating knee pain during running. Previous research has shown that knee pain can be reduced with a shortening of stride length but it has not yet been quantified what this reduction in stride length has regarding the metabolic cost and psychological well-being.

As part of the study each participant gets a 3D lower body biomechanical analysis and a full gait retraining program free of charge with the aim to run pain free.
