The Run Smarter Podcast

Feb 27, 2022

Eric Hegedus is a Professor, physical therapist, clinician, scientist and researcher. We discuss his paper titled: 'Physical performance tests predict injury in national collegiate athletic association athletes: a 3-season prospective cohort study'.

This paper had athletes of all sports go through a series of active motion, power-based, hip stability, flexibility and motor control tests during their pre-season to assess if there were any correlation with future injury. 

Apart from the exciting developments within this study, Eric touches on the key takeaways and practical tips for runners. Eric has a fascinating insight into the ability to predict future running-related injuries which every runner needs to know.

Lastly, Eric shares his thoughts on early detection for injury and if there are any early warning signs that should not be ignored.
