This review article summarized the literature regarding running gait and explains running anatomy in relation to lower and upper body mechanism; contribution of muscles, and jointRunning gait cycle.

Biomechanics and Gait Analysis for Stress Fractures

This chapter focuses on the methodology of carrying out a physical biomechanical examination and running assessment following a stress fracture, and identifies certain patterns reported in the literature to be related to overuse stress injuries of bone and their link to stress fracture etiology.

Kinematics and kinetics of gait: from lab to clinic.

A biomechanical assessment of gait patterns and risk of associated overuse conditions among mature female runners

The long term study objectives were to determine whether the running gait of mature females could be a predisposing factor to injuries and conditions at the knee joint, and if changes in footwear could modify biomechanical variables associated with the development of injuries and overuse conditions.

Clinical Use of Gait Analysis for the Athlete

Researchers and clinicians began to work on to standardize OGA by creating the Physician Rating Scale (PRS), which shows a good to excellent reliability, yet only has a moderate level of accuracy.

Biomechanics of sprint running: A methodological contribution

Results obtained indicated that, due to their portability and inexpensiveness, inertial measurement systems are a valid alternative to laboratory-based instrumentation for in-field performance evaluation of sprint running.

Protocol for evaluating the effects of a therapeutic foot exercise program on injury incidence, foot functionality and biomechanics in long-distance runners: a randomized controlled trial

This is the first randomized clinical trial protocol to assess the effect of an exercise protocol that was designed specifically for the foot-and-ankle complex on running-related injuries to the lower limbs of long-distance runners and aims to show that the proposed protocol is an innovative and effective approach to decreasing the incidence of injuries.
