Rehabbing the Runner
Treating runners is a fun yet often complex biomechanical task. This course will teach you how to efficiently assess and treat your runner patients in an integrative and comprehensive way. We'll update you on the biomechanics of running and how conceptual models of running have changed over the years. You'll also learn a comprehensive gait assessment and how to incorporate functional movement assessments into your treatment plan. Treatment techniques include MFR, MET and mobilizations of the lower quarter as well as exercise progressions for runners at any level. At the completion of this course, you'll be able to treat most any running injury diagnosis with confidence, and apply what you learn to create customized training programs to fit your patients' goals!
As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic.
