DESCRIPTION

“Clinical Running Essentials – Migrating Runners out of the Medical System”

Running is a practical mode of exercise considering its wealth of documented health benefits and minimal barriers to entry. Running, however, is associated with a high incidence of lower extremity injury with studies highlighting that upwards of eighty percent of runners are likely to sustain an injury over the course of a given year. Clinicians working in an outpatient clinical setting would therefore be well served to refine their communication as well as their clinical skills and reasoning to foster improved outcomes in working with runners. This course is designed to help clinicians answer every runner’s most pressing question, “When can I run?” This will be accomplished by introducing an evidence based framework that is rooted in the bio-psycho-social (BPS) model to help runners return to training through a graded exposure approach that is systematic and progressive in nature. An emphasis will be placed on communication strategies, motivational interviewing, assessment, exercise prescription, and running gait analysis while demystifying the role and prescription of footwear. Given the predictable nature of running as an activity, clinicians will develop proficiency in guiding runners back to consistent and healthy training upon completion of this course.

Structure

“Clinical Running Essentials” is an eclectic course that draws on the best research literature related to pain, exercise, assessment, running gait analysis and retraining, and footwear considerations. The course is designed to afford an intimate learning environment by having a low participant to instructor ratio while affording ample time for questions, interaction, and reflective learning.

Course Outline:

3:15-­4:00 Lab – power and plyometric exercise selection for runners

Primary Objectives

*All course participants will be provided with a digital binder prior to the course that provides them with all of the course slides.

1. Objective: The participant will accurately describe the biomechanics, EMG, kinematics, and kinetics of walking and running while highlighting the key differences between these two modes of locomotion.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers.

2. Objective: The participant will identify the incidence and risk factors of running related injuries and the regions most likely to be affected.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers.

3. Objective: The participant will highlight key running related research and impact papers that have been published in recent years related to discussing prospective risk factors for injury.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers.

4. Objective: The participant will describe the components of the biopsychosocial (BPS) model of pain and factors related to each component as it relates to managing injured runners.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers.

5. Objective: The participant will correctly identify the severity and drivers of a running related injuries while screening for red flags.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers, case studies, and live demonstrations.

6. Objective: The participant will demonstrate competency in simple manual techniques and interventions related to the lower extremity of injured runners.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture and lab with feedback from instructor.

7. Objective: The participant will be able to describe, demonstrate and provide cueing related to specific open and closed chain therapeutic exercises, which pertain to build running specific strength, neuromuscular control and comprehensive capacity.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers, and interactive lab with real-time demonstrations.

8. Objective: The participant will identify, describe, and discuss the role of compound strengthening exercises to improve one’s running economy and neuromuscular proficiency.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers as well as video demonstrations.

9. Objective: The participant describe the three common strike patterns related to running as well as their respective implications as they relate to injury and performance.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers.

10. Objective: The participant will conduct a comprehensive running gait analysis and offer specific interventions from a gait retraining specific as a function of common running related injuries.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture and lab where the class takes the course instructor through a treadmill running analysis.

11.Objective: The participant will design and implement a return to running program by applying a graded exposure model to safely return runners back to training and competition.

Learning Strategy/Instruction Method: Lecture with question and answers as well as role playing.
