OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — If you're a runner who experiences knee pain while going through your run, your input could be helpful for a new study at Creighton.

The Department of Physical Therapy in the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions is conducting a study on runners who experience knee pain. The study aims to determine the effects of listening to music on running biomechanics for runners with knee pain. The study is funded by a NASA Nebraska Space Grant.

Volunteers must run at least 10 miles per week and have at least a month of experiencing pain in the front of the knee when running, kneeling, squatting, or sitting for prolonged periods. This study requires two visits with researchers, with two weeks intervening between visits. A $25 stipend is available.

For more information or to join the study, contact Brooke Farmer at 402-280-5265 or brookefarmer@creighton.edu.
