Abstract: Running retraining through biofeedback on a measure of impact loading combined with simple instruction can decrease running related injuries. Running retraining through real-time biofeedback on a direct measure of impact loading has been exclusively executed on treadmill. For example, Peak Tibial Acceleration (PTA) was reduced by provision of simple auditory biofeedback within a single, treadmill-based retraining session. Ecological validity could be improved by conducting retraining programs in an over-ground environment outside the laboratory and with a motivational bio-feedback approach. In this ‘proof of concept’ study, retraining by means of real-time auditory biofeedback happened overground on an indoor running track in runners with elevated PTA. Impact loading was expected to be reduced within a single session.
