Tibial Acceleration and Spatiotemporal Mechanics in Distance Runners During Reduced Body Weight ConditionsNational Strength and Conditioning Association (2013)
Seventy-two percent of all athletic stress fractures are the result of running, with nearly half occurring in the distal end of the tibia. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the level of body weight (BW) in an unloader treadmill and tibial acceleration (TA). Research reports that increased vertical ground reaction force during running is positively correlated to peak TA.
