The Effect of Cadence Manipulation on Plantar Pressures

Cadence manipulation is increasingly being used as a tool to manage overuse injuries in runners and I have previously reviewed two recent studies: Increasing cadence and patellofemoral forces and  Increasing Cadence and Running Injury . Increasing the cadence does decrease the load on some tissues, but increases the load on others, so its going to be six of one and half a dozen of the other . What is better for one runner versus another is going to depend on the injury history and what tissues you want to reduce the load in and what tissues you don’t want to load
