Overview:

Running is a demanding physical activity performed by millions of people worldwide. Given the repetitive high-impact nature of running, many individuals who engage in this form of exercise experience pain or become injured.
For the clinician, managing the injured runner can be challenging as the cause(s) of running injuries are often multifactorial. Furthermore, a thorough biomechanical evaluation is often necessary to determine underlying injury mechanism(s) in order to guide treatment decisions.
This evidence-based course will address contemporary topics related to running mechanics, running-related injuries, and the rehabilitation of the injured runner. The use of video analysis as an integral part of the running examination will be emphasized, and strategies to modify running mechanics will be addressed as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment. Case studies will be utilized to promote the integration of the material presented.
