Longer Runs for Stronger Knees

Longer Runs for Stronger Knees

A research on knee injuries and running gait discovered a noticeable difference between low and high mileage runners.

A recent study showed that the runners who are doing the least miles are more likely to suffer overuse knee injuries. In a survey of fifty runners doing either up to 15 miles a week running or at least 20 miles a week, the scientists discovered that knee injury rates were higher among those runners recording the lowest mileage. After examining running gait factors, the experts suggest that as athletes run more their bodies adapt and establish a way for a safer stride that results in fewer injuries.
