Increasing Cadence and Running Injury

There has been a lot of discussion (as well as a lot of propaganda and rhetoric) and the concept that the getting the cadence to 180 a minute is an ideal way to run and can be used to prevent injury. All appraisals of that concept that I have read suggest its not right. There is certainly some good evidence that certain biomechanical parameters (and hence loads in certain tissues) can be altered with increases in the cadence
