Introduction: Stress fractures of the tibia are a problematic injury among runners of all levels. Quantifying tibial stress using a modeling approach provides an alternative to invasive assessments that may be used to detect changes in tibial stress during running. This study aimed to assess the repeatability of a tibial stress model and to use th...

Stress fracture of the second metatarsal is a common and problematic injury for runners. The choice of foot strike pattern is known to affect external kinetics and kinematics but its effect on internal loading of the metatarsals is not well understood. Subject-specific models of the second metatarsal can be used to investigate internal loading in a...

Tibial stress fractures are a problematic injury amongst runners. Increased loading of the tibia has been observed following prolonged weight‐bearing activity and is suggested to be the result of reduced activity of the plantar flexor muscles. The musculature that spans the tibia contributes to bending of the bone and influences the magnitude of st...
Article
Background Tibial stress fractures (TSFs) cause a significant burden to Royal Marines recruits. No prospective running gait analyses have previously been performed in military settings. Aim We aimed to identify biomechanical gait factors and anthropometric variables associated with increased risk of TSF. Methods 1065 Royal Marines recruits were ass...

Background: The Achilles tendon is the most common site of tendon overuse injury in humans. Running with a forefoot strike pattern and in minimal shoes is a topic of recent interest, yet evidence is currently limited regarding the combined influence of foot strike and footwear on Achilles tendon loading. Purpose: To investigate the influence of...

Stress fracture of the second metatarsal is a common and problematic injury for runners. The choice of foot strike pattern is known to affect external kinetics and kinematics but its effect on internal loading of the metatarsals is not well understood. Models of various complexities can be used to investigate the effects of running characteristics...

Purpose of Review Stress fractures at weight-bearing sites, particularly the tibia, are common in military recruits and athletes. This review presents recent findings from human imaging and biomechanics studies aimed at predicting and preventing stress fractures. Recent Findings Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) provides evidence...

The requirements of running a 2 hour marathon have been extensively debated but the actual physiological demands of running at ~21.1 km/h have never been reported. We therefore conducted laboratory-based physiological evaluations and measured running economy (O2 cost) while running outdoors at ~21.1 km/h, in world-class distance runners as part of...

Second metatarsal stress fractures are a problematic injury for runners and are formed when the rate of repair of bone is outpaced by the damage accumulated during loading. Measuring the peak stresses on the bone during running gives an indication of damage accumulation but direct measurement is invasive. Finite element modelling is a viable altern...
Conference Paper
The foot is a crucial element of human anatomy and acts as the interface between internal tissues and the external surface it encounters. Thus, there are many clinical implications that can arise due to disparity in the structure of individual feet. With such abnormalities, come an array of associated problems, such as arthritis, flat foot, plantar...
Article
Background: Injury rates are high in populations that regularly undertake weight-bearing physical activity, particularly military populations. Military training activities, that often include load carriage, have been associated with lower limb injury occurrence, specifically stress fractures. Research question: Recent work identified plantar loa...
Conference Paper
Second metatarsal (2MT) stress fracture is a common and burdensome injury amongst runners, however understanding of the risk factors leading to injury is limited. Finite Element (FE) modelling represents a viable biorealistic alternative to invasive studies and simple beam theory models. This study shows the design and validation of a simple subjec...
Article
Objectives: This prospective study investigated anatomical and biomechanical risk factors for second and third metatarsal stress fractures in military recruits during training. Design: Prospective cohort study. Methods: Anatomical and biomechanical measures were taken for 1065 Royal Marines recruits at the start of training when injury-free. D...

Introduction Foot drill is a key component of military training and is characterized by frequent heel stamping, likely resulting in high tibial shock magnitudes. Higher tibial shock during running has previously been associated with risk of lower limb stress fractures, which are prevalent among military populations. Quantification of tibial shock d...

It is believed that human ancestors evolved the ability to run bipedally approximately 2 million years ago. This form of locomotion may have been important to our survival and likely has influenced the evolution of our body form. As our bodies have adapted to run, it seems unusual that up to 79% of modern day runners are injured annually. The etiol...

Background: Ankle inversion injuries are one of the most common and burdensome injuries in athletic populations. Research that prospectively identifies characteristics associated with this injury is lacking. This prospective study compared baseline anthropometric and biomechanical gait characteristics of military recruits who sustained an ankle in...
Article
The high stress fracture occurrence in military populations has been associated with frequent load carriage activities. This study aimed to assess the influence of load carriage and of completing a load carriage training activity on gait characteristics. Thirty-two Royal Marine recruits completed a 12.8-km load carriage activity as part of their mi...
Article
Introduction: Running with a forefoot strike (FFS) pattern has been suggested to reduce the risk of overuse running injuries, due to a reduced vertical loadrate compared with rearfoot strike (RFS) running. However, resultant loadrate has been reported to be similar between foot strikes when running in traditional shoes, leading to questions regard...
