Szu-Ping Lee (Physical Therapy) along with Joshua P. Bailey (Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences alum) and Stephanie Barton, David Brown, and Talia Joyce (Physical Therapy alumni) co-authored “Adaptations of lumbar biomechanics after four weeks of running training with minimalist footwear and technique guidance: Implications for running-related lower back pain,” which appeared in the January issue of Physical Therapy in Sport. The four-week study concluded minimalist running training programs produce significant changes in lumbar biomechanics, with runners adopting a more extended lumbar posture and reduced lumbar paraspinal muscle activation. The findings may have clinical implications for treating individuals with running-related lower back pain.
