Presenting preliminary evidence supporting the effects of past and present physical activity behaviors as a key factor for running injury risk.

This lecture is part of the Interdisciplinary Medical and Health Seminars. Guest speaker: Associate professor Allison Gruber, Indiana University Bloomington, United States. Running carries the largest rate of musculoskeletal overuse injury among all other forms of exercise. Decades of research has yet to lead to a single set of predictors or a central mechanism of running injury development. A barrier to revealing the causes of a running injuries may be ignoring other sources of mechanical loading, such as prolonged standing, walking, and other forms of non-running physical activity. This talk will present preliminary evidence supporting the effects of past and present physical activity behaviors as a key factor for running injury risk.
