Three articles on PainSci cite Franklyn-Miller 2014: 1. Is Running on Pavement Risky? 2. The Complete Guide to Trigger Points & Myofascial Pain 3. Shin Splints Treatment, The Complete Guide
PainSci notes on Franklyn-Miller 2014:
Franklyn-Miller et al. argue persuasively that, as with so many other musculoskeletal problems, there are problems with common assumptions made about chronic extertional compartment syndrome (CECS). The problem does not seem to be pressure: “there is currently no evidence of a direct association between this rise in compartment pressure and the pain and reduced muscle function.” So, if not pressure, then what? A muscle overuse syndrome caused by poor running form (exaggerated heel strike): “we have described their condition as a ‘biomechanical overload syndrome’ (BOS),” and they claim to have had good results treating patients by teaching them a running form that doesn’t work the tibialis anterior as hard.
