Restoring Load Capacity in the Injured Runner
This is a two-day course that emphasizes putting the latest evidence into practice. Through a mix of didactic and laboratory sessions attendees will leave with practical skills that will enable them to fully evaluate the injured runner and design a comprehensive training approach to maximize outcomes.
9:00 Introduction - Explore epidemiology & learn which runners are most likely to get injured. Introduce the idea of envelope of function & preparing the runner for high training loads
11:00 Conducting a Clinical Gait Analysis - Analyze gait, learn basic biomechanics & terminology
11:45 Qualitative Gait Analysis - Relating injury to mechanics
1:45 Practice Case Studies - Breakout session
2:45 Video Analysis Laboratory
4:00 Running Shoes - What does the evidence say?
4:45 Discussion and Day 1 Wrap Up
9:00 Principals of Resistance Training - Apply principles of resistance training to address lower limb injuries including tendinopathies and patellofemoral pain
11:30 Therapeutic Exercise Lab
1:45 Return to Running and Gait Retraining
3:30 Live Case Study - Group evaluation of an injured runner discussion and final wrap up
