Injury-Resistant vs. Recently Injured Runners

Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast episode 61
Welcome to episode 61 of The Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast! Today, we speak with Sarah Dillon of Dublin City University. Sarah is a Chartered Physiotherapist and PhD candidate in the School of Health and Human Performance. Her research, funded by the Insight SFI Research centre for Data Analytics centers around lower limb injuries among recreational runners. In this episode, we examine whether or not pre-existing injuries effects a runner’s overall performance. Bryan and Sarah review factors of the DCU Running Injury Surveillance (RISC) Study including how often participants ran, their training regimen previous to the study, and where their injury was located.

Information gathered from this podcast can help clinicians in assessing patient recovery time and exercises. You can find more information about Sarah’s first output of her research from the American College of Sports Medicine’s research journal, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise (MSSE).
