    Anyone read the article and the questionaire?
    I hope they asked whether the injury occured before the got the orthotics or the knee brace. Why are using that brace? It makes my previous injury feel better. Oh, injury is associated with using a knee brace.

    The title of the thread is very misleading. The title of the article is moderately misleading. You'd think that they were looking at injuries in that specific marathon.

    I have not had a chance to look at this paper, but we did a study a few yrs back (no data published yet) in a military population .... the only thing that actually predicted injury in that cohort was 'currently wearing foot orthotics'! Obviously, if they wearing foot orthotics they had an injury history, so was it the orthotics that caused the injury they got or was it the risk they have because they obviously had risk factors to get an injury. Depends which agenda you want to push or which Church you belong to, you can push either interpretation.
