    Further into the conversation, Rob uncovers tips to ramp up your weekly mileage, strategies to increase your mental resiliency & insights he has learnt to help runners of any distance.

    (Part 2) Debunking Leg Length Discrepancy

    (Part 2) Debunking Leg Length Discrepancy

    Brodie dives into a 2005 review paper by Gary A Knutson titled: 'Anatomic and functional leg-length inequality: A review and recommendation for clinical decision-making'.
    In part 2 Brodie will talk about:
    Your responses and personal experiences with leg length discrepancy, what treatments have been effective or unhelpful. The difference between anatomical discrepancy and the functional 'short leg', stemmed from neuromuscular dysfunction.  The effects a leg discrepancy might have on your core endurance, balance and coordination. The role of heel lifts for individuals with and without significant discrepancy (>20mm).  Brodie then summarises the episode and includes his perspective on the relevance within the running community.

    (Part 1) Debunking Leg Length Discrepancy

    Brodie dives into a 2005 review paper by Gary A Knutson titled: 'Anatomic and functional leg-length inequality: A review and recommendation for clinical decision-making'.
    In part 1 of this 2 parter, Brodie will talk about:
    The prevalence of leg-length difference: How common is it amongst the population, and out of those with a leg difference, what is the average in discrepancy? The effects of lower leg discrepancy: If one were to have a difference in leg length, does this lead to pain? Does it lead to postural defects? What are the compensations that are occurring?  How much of a lower leg difference is clinically significant? If someone where to present with pain, dysfunction and disability due to different leg lengths, how large does the difference need to be?  Brodie then summarises the episode and includes his perspective on the relevance within the running community.

MOultraRunner ,

hands down the best running podcast

as a serious, amateur ultrarunner, who has gone through 8 weeks of physical therapy for IT band syndrome, I appreciate all of the injury prevention knowledge, along with all of the other running wisdom in this podcast. it’s thoughtful, grade A information for a runner of any level. I’ve suggested this one to all of my running buddies.
