The Running Course - The Next Step
This two day advanced running course applies the most current optimal evidence based information for the evaluation and treatment of running injuries. Information is delivered through a format that combines interactive lecture and comprehensive laboratory sessions. Analysis of the biomechanics of running through physical evaluation and video analysis will prepare the course participant in the clinical decision making process required to develop comprehensive treatment programs. Specific strategies are presented in determining how to identify key elements in video gait analysis and how to apply findings to improve running and gait. In addition, time is spent on types of video analysis equipment and software, and how to implement these technologies into your practice. Course emphasis will also be placed on running mechanics, performance, and how to identify potential injuries through mechanical analysis. Once injuries are identified, discussion will focus on biomechanical and functional approaches to rehabilitation. Current evidence based information is provided on foot taping, shoe design, over the counter arch supports and determining the need for the correct orthotics. Age related changes, tissue physiology and abnormal mechanics are discussed to help the clinician through a process of differential diagnosis to develop appropriate patient specific solutions. Case studies will be presented throughout the two days to exhibit the concepts and applications. Each participant will take an active role throughout this course to discuss and apply the information provided. The main goal of this course is to enable therapists to feel confident in a comprehensive approach allowing them to achieve superior outcomes when they return to their clinics, ready to implement and market a successful running program.
