Ian Griffiths' Excellent Podcast on Tissue Stress and Running Injuries

Discussion in 'Biomechanics, Sports and Foot orthoses' started by Kevin Kirby, Nov 6, 2013.

    Ian Griffiths just did a podcast on tissue stress theory and running injuries which, in my opinion, is the best "lecture" I have heard on this subject...ever!

    Ian, you did a fantastic job!:drinks:drinks

    I hope all podiatrists on Podiatry Arena listen to the podcast by Ian, who, in my opinion, is one of the young bright stars of the UK podiatry profession!

    (Ian starts in at about 17 minutes into the podcast.)

  2. Nice work Griff- always said you had a great face for radio.
  3. Good one Ian well done.

    I should be working, but I just finished listening to it. Epic job in articulating the mechanical concepts clearly in regards to the tissue stress model. I liked the example with the elastic band too. Keep up the great work, Ian.

    As above Griff!

    Top job. Sounded like one take which is impressive!
  6. I bet he had notes in front of him...;) Even so Mr Griffiths, a wider stage beckons.

    Hi all

    Thanks for all the kind comments! I can confirm it was all in one take, I did have a few points I'd scribbled down infront of me, and I most certainly have a face for radio/podcast.

    Fell asleep at one point then woke up just as he mentioned something about your toolbox? ;)
  10. At least he didn't mention your "sugarlumps"....:cool:

    Hi Ian,

    Great little podcast mate. Funnily enough I have just had a do a presentation on the whole stress strain for my MSc.

    Franklyn, M., Oakes, B., Field, B., Wells, P., & Morgan, D. (2008). Section modulus is the optimum geometric predictor for stress fractures and medial tibial stress syndrome in both male and female athletes. Am J Sports Med, 36(6), 1179-1189. doi: 10.1177/0363546508314408

    I have the paper if you want it.

    Ian, I have dropped you a e-mail with the paper, incase you do not have it.

  13. Nick and Ian:

    Here are two other references from my lecture on Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome which also discuss the importance of tibial area moment of inertia.

    Nick, please send me that paper my way also.

    All sent over kevin.

  15. I'll be giving the following 45 minute lecture at the International Podiatry Seminar in Zaragoza, Spain on February 7 & 8. 2014 titled ""Tissue Stress Theory: Changing the Paradigm in Biomechanical Therapy for the Foot and Lower Extremity".

    Should tie in nicely with Ian's podcast. Hope to see many of you all there.

    It would appear that Griff's toolbox is far more well known than my sugarlumps in this respect
  17. ...or your trunks, junk, or rump....

    Sadly, you are correct. And with a ginger moustache on the way for Ian, I am to be left feeling even more inadequate :eek:

    This is true. A combination of false bravado and peer pressure has secured my place in Movember this year. Thought I'd push the boat and and try for a handlebar. Unconvincing so far. See my page for a recent pic with the mandatory "serial killer - advanced' look. And while you are there feel free to leave some witty banter and give generously for a great cause:

    So Ian,

    Would you say in a nutshell that by developing an 'optimum tissue stress' database, for lack of a better term, we would be able to work out what each person's optimum tissue stress should be for their height, size, structural anatomy and intended activity and work towards putting them into this 'range' to further prevent injury and maintain peak performance?

    Excellent podcast, thank you for sharing.
