Ferber authors biomechanics text

Reed Ferber, PhD, ATC, associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Calgary and director of the Running Injury Clinic in Calgary, Canada, has authored a textbook that focuses on running biomechanics and injury prevention. Publisher Human Kinetics released the book, Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis, in June.

Ferber said he and coauthor Shari Macdonald, MSc, a physiotherapist and clinic director of the Running Injury Clinic, wrote the book to bring together biomechanics and gait analysis and teach interpretation of the data.

The text includes a discussion of running biomechanics; guidelines for assessing, treating, and preventing a range of running injuries; and a detailed analysis of running biomechanics to help professionals identify the interactions of the kinetic chain and the causes of overuse injuries.
