Cadence of 180 steps/min to treat and reduce risk of running injury

This concept has popped up on my radar a bit recently, so I looked into it some more. This comment in the context of managing a runner with patellofemoral pain first got my attention: Quote: Address their running form……. Make sure they are at a proper cadence, 180 steps/minute.

Is the ‘180 Cadence’ a myth or something to aim for?
