High Eccentric Hip Abduction Strength Reduces the Risk of Developing Patellofemoral Pain Among Novice Runners Initiating a Self-Structured Running Program: A 1-Year Observational Study

Initiatives -
To investigate the relationship between eccentric hip abduction strength and the development of patellofemoral pain (PFP) in novice runners during a self-structured running regime. Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.

Timeline

Population

Information about participation in the project was distributed through newspapers and posters. People interested in participation signed up by completing an online questionnaire, which contained questions regarding health, previous injuries, and participation in sports. Based on an initial screening of the questionnaires, eligible participants were contacted by phone and given verbal information about the study. Individuals between 18 and 65 years of age, who had not experienced injuries in the lower extremity in the 3 months prior to signing up and had not been running more than a total of 10 km in the previous 12 months, were eligible for inclusion.
