The article explores the most prominent running injuries and associated risk factors with a view to explaining how barefoot running may alter load to the tissues most affected by running injury. It explains the difference between barefoot running and gait retraining and gives some practical recommendations on implementing barefoot running safely. Register below to read the key points.

Historically, friction at the lateral femoral condyle has been thought to be the cause of iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). This review presents the reader with evidence that, rather than friction, compression of the lateral femoral condyle caused by altered biomechanics (as well as excessive loading) is responsible for ITBS. This review also summarises the treatment modalities for ITBS, with a significant focus on gait retraining and biomechanics. A conservative treatment paradigm is also presented to guide clinical reasoning in relation to symptom severity and irritability. The article includes a certificated elearning assessment.
