Dr. Jessica Leitch – Run3D

rsz_jess_profile_picIn this episode, we speak with Dr. Jessica Leitch, creator of a physiotherapy and injury prevention service for runners called Run3D.  The company uses 3D gait analysis to precisely track the motion of runners.  The data is then used to provide specific and evidence-based recommendations to help resolve injury.  It’s an excellent example of top-level research being made available to both elite and recreational athletes.  They post lots of useful running information on their Facebook page and well-informed articles on their Blog.  Check it out!
