Knee injuries are prevalent in sports and associated with degenerative changes to the joint (Silverwood et al.,2015). High external knee adduction moments (EKAMs), knee adduction angular impulses (KAAIs) and knee flexion moments (KFMs) have been associated with increased cartilage deterioration (Chehab, Favre, Erhart-Hledik, & Andriacchi, 2014). Lateral wedge insoles (LWIs) have demonstrated reductions in biomechanical loading (EKAM, KAAI) associated with osteoarthritis progression during walking in individuals with osteoarthritis (OA; Jones, Chapman, Forsythe, Parkes, & Felson, 2014). Younger individuals who sustain a knee injury during sport are likely to return to physical activity following treatment (Kim, Nagao, Kamata, Maeda, & Nozawa, 2013). With increased risk of developing knee OA, identifying preventative measures to delay the progression of OA during dynamic tasks such as running is required.
