This advanced course will provide a thorough review of the most recent scientific findings related to the examination, diagnosis and treatment of running injuries. Discussion will focus on the current literature pertaining to running mechanics and injury, and the clinical decision-making needed to achieve superior outcomes. The use of video analysis as part of the running gait examination will be emphasized, and novel strategies to modify running mechanics will be presented as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment. Multiple case studies will be integrated to illustrate concepts and promote idea application. The overall objective is to provide each participant with an understanding of the current knowledge pertaining to the management of running-related injuries, with techniques that can be immediately applied in clinical practice.
