  • Move Forward Radio Discusses the Effects of Pregnancy on Running

    Today’s episode of Move Forward Radio focused on a study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy examining the effects of pregnancy on the biomechanics of runners.

    Study coauthors Bryan Heiderscheit, PT, PhD, and Liz Chumanov, PT, DPT, PhD, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, explain their findings and offer advice for women who want to continue to run during pregnancy and after.

    Also interviewed is one of the study’s participants, who shared her personal experiences of running during and after pregnancy.

    Move Forward Radio airs approximately twice a month. Episodes are featured and archived at MoveForwardPT.com, APTA's official consumer information website, and can be streamed online via Blog Talk Radio or downloaded as a podcast via iTunes.
