Reconciling new with old injury paradigms and the need to dig deeper – comment on Nigg et al.

Max R. Paquette, Ross H. Miller

Abstract


In response to the target article by Nigg et al (2017) suggesting the need to shift towards new running injury paradigms, we comment on the need to continue investigating a variety of paradigms, new and old, and on poorly studied factors that necessitate the need to continue digging deeper in the pursuit of better prediction of injury development. Lastly, we argue that new and old paradigms can be reconciled under the more general paradigm that running injuries are most directly an issue of tissue adaptation.
