Overview of Doctoral Research

The effect of fatigue and training on running related injury risk factors

Running as a recreational activity amongst the population is continuously on the rise. One of the consequences of running is high incidence of running related injury, these are defined as any musculoskeletal symptom of the lower limb that requires a reduction or stoppage of a runners’ normal training for at least one day. Patellofemoral pain syndrome has shown to be the most common overuse injury amongst runners with iliotibial band syndrome coming in second. Of the many running related injury risk factors, fatigue has yet to be fully examined as a potential risk factor. This research will examine the effects of fatigue caused by training and observe any risk factor that could cause either patellofemoral pain syndrome or iliotibial band syndrome. The target population will be experience recreational runners. One potential for this research is the ability to promote fatigue as an injury risk factor for runners.
