Biomechanics and Running Retaining course - London
25 (Sat) and 26 (Sun) April 2020 08:45 - 17:00 (GMT)
Pure Sport Medicine - Canary Wharf
Cabot Place West
This highly practical course will give you the skills and knowledge to diagnose and manage biomechanical deficits associated with lower limb injuries in runners.
The course explores ideal lower limb biomechanics, provide an overview of how common biomechanical faults link to injury in runners, and how to identify and address them in a clinical setting.
The evidence behind, and practical application of interventions including prefabricated foot orthoses prescription, taping, movement pattern retraining, exercise rehabilitation, and adjunctive manual therapy for common lower limb injuries are explored.
The course is delivered by Dr Christian Barton and will be a mixture of lectures, discussions and practical workshops.
- Understand how to complete a thorough biomechanical assessment of the runner, including screening muscle capacity, joint mobility and running technique
- Be confident in determining potentially key biomechanical contributions to injury persistence
- Understand the benefits, safety, how and when to change running biomechanics, including consideration to proximal and swing phase mechanics
- Be able to consider the influence of footwear and potential of barefoot or minimalist running to treat or cause injury
- Be able to confidently prescribe adequately loaded exercise programs at home or in the gym to help your runners with injury and performance
- Be able to have an evidence-based conversation with runners about the implications of running technique and exercise on performance
- Help runners at your clinic run pain free and improve their performance
- Be able to apply course principles and clinical reasoning your develop to non-running clinical presentations
