The Real Running Course
Runners can be one of the most fun and rewarding populations to work with, but also one of the trickiest because of the many variables involved, as well as conflicting research and opinions.
Research has shown that runners report better experiences with their care providers and have better outcomes when their practitioner has advanced knowledge of treating running related injuries (RRI’s). While “traditional” physiotherapy can be effective in helping these patients, a deeper understanding of the pathology in light of the demands of running is paramount to building consistently effective treatment plans. In addition, having the knowledge to provide patients with an appropriate return to run program will greatly decrease the likelihood that they will experience re-injury during this crucial phase of injury rehabilitation.
The purpose of this course is to provide you with a framework in which you can organize your findings in order to develop a cohesive, straightforward, and practical treatment plan that will get your runner better, faster. This framework takes the guessing out of your interventions and ensures that no rocks are left unturned.
With a section on Basic Coaching and plenty of patient resources included, we can guarantee that you will complete this course with confidence in providing gait analyses, shoe recommendations, and mileage adjustments for runners of any level. Lastly, we will touch on how to use your knowledge to also treat patients virtually with great results.
