Foot orthotics and joint stiffness in runners

Acute exposure to foot orthoses affects joint stiffness characteristics in recreational male runners PJ Taylor et al Comparative Exercise Physiology; In Press Quote: Commercially available foot orthoses are advocated for the treatment of chronic running injuries, such as patellofemoral pain, yet the mechanisms behind their effects are not well understood. This study aimed to examine the limb and joint stiffness characteristics when running with and without orthotics. Twelve recreational runners ran at 4.0 m/s.
