Increasing cadence and patellofemoral forces

Hot on the heels of the study from last week on Barefoot vs Shod and patellofemoral joint stresses which showed that running barefoot reduced patellofemoral stress by 12%, we now have another new study that looked at patellofemoral loads and cadence: Increasing Running Step Rate Reduces Patellofemoral Joint Forces Lenhart, Rachel L.; Thelen, Darryl G.; Wille, Christa M.; Chumanov, Elizabeth S.; Heiderscheit, Bryan C. Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise: 2 August 2013 Purpose: Increasing step rate has been shown to elicit changes in joint kinematics and kinetics during running, and has been suggested as a possible rehabilitation strategy for runners with patellofemoral pain
