Functional, Athletic Rehabilitation and Movement for Runners

If all you’re looking at is volume, intensity and time…you’re missing one of the biggest pieces of the running puzzle – movement quality.

More runners are being injured than ever before and too many practitioners are using antiquated assessment and treatment methods. This flies in the face of our “growing” understanding of treating injuries and deciphering running biomechanics.

Rethinking Running Rehab translates the latest research into actionable clinical practice concepts. Learn a holistic approach to athlete management, the role that aerobic capacity (or lack thereof) plays in almost all injuries, and most importantly the miseducation around what is considered normal from a running gait perspective.

  • Why do so many running injuries occur? And how can you prevent them?
  • Why are some people plagued with chronic injuries while others are rarely affected?
  • How much do “proper” mechanics and foot strike matter?
  • How to effectively tailor training programs around injury management
  • What can you do to get runners doing work outside the sagittal plane?

You’ll also explore hot topics like VO2 max, footwear, foot strike, and gait analysis. Walk away with dynamic and functional assessment strategies that save you time alongside today’s most effective conservative musculoskeletal care techniques.

Best of all? These strategies are applicable for all lower extremity athletes and injuries, not just runners! Register today!

  1. Investigate the importance of aerobic capacity as the foundation upon which efficient and pain-free movement strategy is built.
  2. Analyze the relationship between aerobic capacity, pain, and movement
  3. Diagnose efficiently and effectively both the pathogenesis as well as the functional audit pertaining to a runner’s injury.
  4. Determine how to make an appreciable change in running gait for injury rehabilitation and performance purposes, utilizing a systems approach.
  5. Inspect the importance of phenotyping of runners rehab and training purposes.
  6. Evaluate the most current literature and case studies that address the importance of the diagnostic process utilized within The FARM systems approach.
  7. Develop a framework for managing endurance athletes rather than simply treating injuries.
