Advanced Concepts in Running Injuries
16 (Sat) and 17 (Sun) March 2024 09:00 - 17:00 (GMT)
Pure Sports Medicine - St Paul's
One New Change
This course is a two-day (14 hour) course that emphasizes putting the latest evidence into practice to provide innovative solutions for the runner with relative overuse injuries.
The typical attendee currently treats runners and has completed running gait evaluations, but is looking to elevate their practice with the latest evaluation and treatment techniques.
Diagnoses to be included will include patellofemoral pain, iliotibial band pain, and the most common lower limb tendinopathies including Achilles, peroneal, posterior tibialis, as well as plantar fasciopathy.
The course will also cover the most common bone stress injuries of the lower limb, including tibia, metatarsal, navicular bone stress injuries.
Clinicians will leave this course feeling comforable screening for RED-S and able to implement the latest in bone and tendon health science. Specific training load prescription and strength and conditioning practices to both prevent and treat various injuries is a foundation of this course. Overall, there will be an emphasis on hands-on, laboratory experiences of the didactic components of this course so that attendees can immediately put into practice newly learned skills.
Case studies will be used throughout the course to provide relevant examples.
At the completion of the course, the participant should be able to;
- Participants will be able to identify key diagnostic criteria for patellofemoral pain.
- Participants will be able to create an evidence-based treatment program for individuals with patellofemoral pain.
- Participants will be able to specify the running mechanics that increasing biomechanical loading of the iliotibial band.
- Participants will be able to specify the most accurate clinical examination techniques to diagnose an individual with Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciopathy.
- Participants will be able to identify individuals most at-risk for a lower limb bone stress injury.
- Participants will know the diagnostic criteria for tibial bone stress injuries.
- Participants will be knowledgeable on the types of biomechanical loads that increase and decrease metatarsal bone stress.
- Participants will be able to develop a treatment program for individuals with a tibial bone stress injury, from initial injury through return to competition.
- Participants will be knowledgeable on the biomechanical loads that increase navicular bone stress and how to treat navicular bone stress injuries based on their grade.
