Active Voice: Can Gait Retraining Reduce Risk of Developing Overuse Running Injuries?

from By Bradley J Bowser, Ph.D., and Irene S. Davis, Ph.D., PT, FACSM, FAPTA, FASB

Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent positions or policies of ACSM.

Bradley J Bowser, Ph.D., earned his doctoral degree at the University of Georgia before completing postdoctoral training in the Running Injury Research Lab at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. A member of ACSM, Dr. Bowser is currently an associate professor and director of the Biomechanics Research Laboratory at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota. His research focuses on lower extremity biomechanics.

Irene S. Davis, Ph.D., PT, FACSM, FAPTA, FASB, is an ACSM member and professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, and is director of the Spaulding National Running Center. Dr. Davis’ research focuses on mechanical factors that influence running-related injuries, the effectiveness of interventions to minimize risk of such injuries and strategies to improve post-injury rehabilitation.

This commentary presents Dr. Bowser’s and Dr. Davis’ views on the topic of the research article that they and their colleagues had published in the December 2018 issue of
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE). more
