Describe biomechanical differences between running and walking gait. Understand the current literature to ascertain the functional definition of core stability. Demonstrate how to objectively assess core strength with running athletes, and train patients for improved self awareness for lumbopelvic stability. Conduct thorough evidence based functional screening techniques to identify biomechanical faults of the injured runner. Techniques include lateral step down test, lunge test, functional movement screening, active hip abduction test, pelvic firing pattern assessment, swing test, and star excursion balance test. Perform taping techniques for plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonopathy, knee pain and low back pain. Illustrate foot and ankle anatomy and biomechanical drivers of underpronation and overpronation. Perform foot and ankle screening techniques including navicular drop tests, rearfoot excursion test, active heel raise test, functional hallux limitus test and Jack’s test. Discuss the concepts of barefoot, minimalist, and traditional shoe wear running and how these trends impact lower extremity kinematics, ground reaction forces, and running posture. Develop an evidence based algorithm for exercise prescription specific to running biomechanics, frontal and transverse plane kinematics, and lower extremity pain syndromes. Perform mobilization/manipulation techniques to restore joint motion and decrease pain with running specific pathologies for the ankle, knee and hip. Techniques include talocrural joint, proximal tibiofibular joint, and hip joint mobilization/manipulation. Discuss the etiology and differential diagnosis of the most common running injuries including medial tibial stress syndrome, heel and plantar fascia pain, hip pain, and Achilles tendinopathy. Perform real time facilitation techniques to modify running form to decrease mechanical forces responsible for injury. Understand basic concepts of video analysis of running gait and be able to apply gait analysis to the clinical setting. Perform differential diagnosis of hip pain and screen tests for labral tears, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and osteoarthritis. Discuss newer concepts in pain generators for patellofemoral pain syndrome.
