Running rehab: running retraining, exercise and performance
In this course, Christian will give you the skills and knowledge to diagnose and manage biomechanical deficits in injured runners. The course explores ideal lower limb biomechanics, provides an overview of how common biomechanical faults link to injury, and how to identify and address them in the clinic. The evidence behind and practical application of running retraining, exercise, footwear and other adjunctive interventions are explored in relation to both injury and performance.
- Explore important principles to consider during assessment and rehabilitation of biomechanical and running injuries
- Understand ideal and potential biomechanical faults and their relationship with running injury
- Develop clinical skills to assess potential structural and functional biomechanical factors which may be linked to running injuries and performance
- Develop skills and clinical reasoning processes to apply running retraining
- Apply exercise and resistance training to assist in running injury management and performance
- Understand the implications of footwear modification to the management running injuries and performance
- Pre-reading materials distributed at registration cut off date.
