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.
Kids Physio Group and The Running Physio have teamed up to create the world’s first course directed specifically on how to work with kids on the skill of running. Together, both instructors from the pediatric and running worlds will teach you all about typical running development from infancy to teenagerhood, provide you with running and biomechanical assessment strategies, and explore the special considerations for performance running in pediatrics.
This course is designed for physiotherapists or other practitioners who work with young to teenaged children seeking assessment, consultation, or practical strategies directed at addressing developmental running concerns, treating running-related injuries, and improving running performance. Over seven comprehensive video lectures, you will become familiar with the Three Cornerstones Framework used to simplify your assessment of a patient with a running-related concern, learn how running is a motor milestone throughout a typical child’s development, become confident in conducting simple-to-complex pediatric gait analyses, and learn basic principles for consultation of performance running patients and their families.
This course uses voice-recorded lectures, assessment and gait analysis videos, case studies, and lecture summaries. A “Patient Pathway Map” is used in both the introductory and final lectures to provide you with an overview of suggested management strategies depending on your patient’s goals.
Practitioners who enjoy running will appreciate the tools and techniques provided for working with running-specific problems, and pediatric physios will benefit from being able to connect how early motor milestones can affect running pattens and gait. Generalized physiotherapists can arm themselves with knowledge from both the pediatric and running realms to supercharge their assessment and treatment techniques when working with the young adult active population.
