Dan Bonanno discusses his recent BJSM systematic review evaluating evidence for the usefulness of foot orthoses and shock absorbing insoles to prevent injuries.
Knee cap pain is the most common form of knee pain. Pain can be hard to pin point but may be around, behind, or under the knee cap. It affects both males and females of all activity levels and ages. It can cause problems that limit your ability to complete simple daily activities such as walking, running,…read more
I hope you enjoy this presentation on running retraining for patellofemoral pain provided as part of evidence informed practice at SMA conference in Melbourne 2016.
1. Estimation of musculotendon parameters for scaled and subject-specific musculoskeletal models using an optimisation technique. (Modenese et al. 2016) Why I like it: Attempts to address two of the most challenging aspect of developing subject-specific musculoskeletal models which implement Hill-type muscle models: quantification of optimal fibre length and tendon slack length for each muscle in the model. Take…read more
1. “Muscle fibre length and velocity in running and walking”: How muscle fiber lengths and velocities affect muscle force generation as humans walk and run at different speeds (Arnold et al. 2013) Why I like it: Uses advanced musculoskeletal modelling techniques to quantitatively explore the effects of the fundamental phenomenological properties of muscle fibres on the mechanical demands…read more
