Study for Runners

The Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation is sponsoring a research study on:

Well-Being in Runners Recovering from Lower Extremity Overuse Injury

Are you a runner who is seeking medical care for a recent lower extremity injury? This study is studying how the overall feelings of well-being, anxiety and mood change during the recovery period until the injured runner is back to running normal distance and volume.

Who are we looking for?

  • Men and Women
  • Aged 18-65 years
  • Free of acute orthopaedic injury like ankle sprain, knee ligament tear
  • Free of symptomatic cardiovascular disease
  • Must be seeking care for current injury that has interrupted or decreased regular running volume

What is involved?

  • Monthly completion of several surveys of well-being, mood, pain, and physical ability
  • Running gait measures at the beginning and end of rehabilitation
