We welcome Dr. Patrick McCulloch, co-program director of The Houston Methodist Sports Medicine Fellowship, and his current fellow, Dr. Matthew Kraeutler to discuss their study “Effects of Running on the Development of Knee Osteoarthritis: An Updated Systematic Review at Short-Term Follow-up” published in OJSM in March. The connection between running and osteoarthritic progression in the knee has been a topic of controversy for years. Common sense would say running must be bad for your knees, however could the health benefits of running actually play a protective role? We thank Drs. McCulloch and Kraeutler and their team for tackling this hot topic and sharing their discoveries with us.
