Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a motion control running shoe reduces tibial rotation in the transverse plane during treadmill running. DESIGN: An experimental study measuring tibial rotation in volunteer participants using a repeated measures design. SETTING: Human Movement Laboratory, School of Health Professions, University of Brighton. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-four healthy participants were tested. The group comprised males and females with size 6, 7, 9 and 11 feet. The age range for participants was 19 to 31 years. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The total range of proximal tibial rotation was measured using the Codamotion 3-D Movement Analysis System. RESULTS: A one-tailed paired t-test indicated a statistically significant decrease in the total range of proximal tibial rotation when a motion control shoe was worn (mean difference 1.38°, 95\% confidence interval 0.03 to 2.73, P=0.04). CONCLUSIONS: There is a difference in tibial rotation in the transverse plane between a motion control running shoe and a neutral running shoe. The results from this study have implications for the use of supportive running shoes as a form of injury prevention. Copyright © 2010 Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
