Episode 3: The Mechanics of Running Injury with Sports Podiatrist Ian Griffiths | Train Smarter Podcast | Kinetic Revolution In this week’s Train Smarter podcast, we have an interview with sports podiatrist Ian Griffiths (@Sports_Pod). Ian helps us to understand how the various loads the body experiences when running can sometimes lead to injury. Understanding how the stresses and strains of running are applied to soft tissues, bones and joints is important in learning how to treat any running injury effectively.

In recent years our understanding of the pathology of tendinopathy has grown – we now know that it isn’t really an inflammatory process and that load plays a large role. We also know that it’s important to determine the ‘stage’ of the tendinopathy and this will have a huge influence on how you manage it. Jill Cook and Craig Purdam have been at the forefront of tendinopathy research for some years. Reactive tendinopathy typically involves the tendon responding to a rapid increase in loading. “A short term adaptation to overload that thickens the tendon, reduces stress and increases stiffness” Tendon dysrepair is usually the stage that would follow reactive tendinopathy if the tendon continues to be excessively loaded.
