Just days after I lament that a recent case control study did not include factors that there is increased interest in when it comes to medial tibial stress syndrome and also noting that prospective studies provide a more powerful conclusion than a case control study, we have a prospective study which included the factors that there is an increased interest in …. go figure! This was just published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine : The role of proximal dynamic joint stability in the development of exertional medial tibial pain: a prospective study Ruth Verrelst, Dirk De Clercq, Jos Vanrenterghem, Tine Willems, Tanneke Palmans, Erik Witvrouw Br J Sports Med doi:10.1136/bjsports-2012-092126 Objective To prospectively determine risk factors contributing to the development of exertional medial tibial pain (EMTP).
