This two-day intermediate level lecture and hands-on laboratory course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines for the examination, differential diagnosis and treatment interventions for running-related injuries. New research on how to accurately diagnose and treat plantar heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, stress fractures and muscular strains will be reviewed. An emphasis on the utilization of video gait analysis as a key diagnostic and treatment tool will be incorporated throughout the course. Hands-on laboratory break-out sessions will focus on performing a functional biomechanical examination specific to runners, fabricating orthotic devices, and performing and interpreting selected special tests for the hip, knee and ankle with an emphasis on their application to runners. Case studies will be utilized throughout the course to illustrate key concepts. This interactive course will allow course participants to enhance their diagnostic, examination and treatment skills of injured runners. The overall course objective is to provide course participants with a thorough understanding of running biomechanics and the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines in order to effectively and efficiently enhance the quality of patient outcomes. A comprehensive course packet will include pictures, references and clinical pearls for quick reference in the clinic.
