Biomechanical overload and lower limb injuries, with Andrew Franklyn-Miller

Biomechanical overload and lower limb injuries, with Andrew Franklyn-Miller

Diagnosing chronic exertional compartment syndrome relies on measuring intramuscular pressure, however Andrew Franklyn-Miller (Sports Surgery Clinic, Dublin; education director at BASEM) has shown the criteria for this are flawed (2.51). He talks to BJSM editor Karim Khan about what clinicians can do to get round this, his theory the condition is caused by biomechanical overload and his work looking at running re-education to alleviate symptoms (6.13).He also gives us his views on barefoot running (10.44) and talks about his research on orthotics (17.57).Finally, as UKsem’s director, Dr Franklyn-Miller gives us an update on the speakers and programme of the upcoming conference (21.04).See also:Foot Orthoses in the Prevention of Injury in Initial Military Training http://ajs.sagepub.com/content/39/1/30.abstractThe validity of the diagnostic criteria used in chronic exertional compartment syndrome: A systematic review http://bit.ly/10aEvc9Chronic exertional compartment syndrome testing:
