Event description
CLINICAL RUNNING ESSENTIALS -Migrating Runners out of the Medical System-

About this Event

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 science based framework that is rooted in the bio- psycho-social (BPS) model to help runners return to training through a graded exposure approach. An emphasis will be placed on communication strategies, motivational interviewing, running specific functional assessments, 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 and most current research 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.
