Event description
Learn the latest tools to perform running analysis for runners of all levels.

About this Event

This course will teach clinicians the latest research on running biomechanics and equip them with the necessary tools to perform a comprehensive observational running analysis for runners of all levels. The instructors will break down the critical phases of running, highlight key events, and relate abnormal biomechanics to common overuse injuries and performance issues. By the completion of this course, participants will be prepared to perform a comprehensive observational running analysis within 5 minutes.

Instructors

Richard Souza, PT, PhD, ATC, CSCS, received his Ph.D. in biomechanics from the University of Southern California. He joined UCSF Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging in May 2008 as a postdoctoral scholar focusing on quantitative MRI of cartilage. Dr. Souza is a faculty member in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science at UCSF where he has involvement and special focus in projects that evaluate the loading behavior on cartilage health. Dr Souza has presented nationally on topics of biomechanics and running injuries, including at ACSM and APTA conferences.

Christopher DaPrato, DPT, SCS, CSCS, PES, obtained his Master's degree in physical therapy from CSULB, and his clinical doctorate in physical therapy from Temple University. DaPrato is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, and works primarily with the sports orthopedic population. He currently is a team PT for Division 1 athletes at UC Berkeley, and works extensively with their track and field, football, and soccer teams. DaPrato has been teaching CE courses over the last several years in the areas of athlete return to play, specialty concepts related to the LE, endurance athlete management, and unique manual therapy applications for injuries & athlete.

Anthony Luke, MD. MPH, completed a primary care sports medicine fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Boston and Master's degree in public health at Harvard University. Dr. Luke is board certified in primary care for sports medicine, and has experience serving as medical race director for the San Francisco Marathon, Nike Women's Marathon, The SJ Rock N Roll Half, and Escape from Alcatraz.
