  • Application of markers for identification of anatomic landmarks can be useful when performing a video-based running analysis. Ideally on skin but can be on tight running with only a small loss of accuracy. They should be placed on the landmarks are identified and marked: C7 spinous process, posterior superior iliac spines, anterior superior iliac spine, greater trochanter, lateral knee joint line, lateral malleolus, midpoint of the calf, superior and inferior portions of the heel shoe counter, and head of the fifth metatarsal.

  • Warm up Studies have identified changes in kinematics deviating from normal running mechanics with treadmill running up to the initial 6 minutes.16 Therefore, an acclimation period of 6 to 10 minutes should be used when possible before evaluation. It is also important consider the nature of symptom provocation in an injured runner. If a runner experiences symptoms after a number of minutes or miles, it may be necessary to acquire video with the runner in a fatigued state, after a period of running and consistent with their symptom history.
