The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) has its Annual Meeting come up (May 8-13, 2017) so we celebrate with this podcast. Dr Devin McFadden (Sports Medicine Fellow, Washington D.C) is your host. He chats with Dr Bert Fields (Sports Medicine Physician, North Carolina), Dr Robert Oh (Sports medicine, Fort Benning, Georgia) and Dr Chad Asplund (Athletic Sports Medicine, Georgia Southern University)

Topics discussed include:
• Common mistakes made by amateur running athletes – training errors and hip abduction weakness get a mention
• Is one type of exercise best for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease? The trade-off between health benefits and injury risk.
• Non-MSK running injuries- which ones do we need to think about?
• Biomechanics of running and types of shoes
• Minimalist and barefoot running- evidence supporting a different running style?
