Description

Whether you are working with 5K or marathon runners, they are often a different breed. Taking time off? No way. They push through injuries, hoping to beat the clock in their next race.

The high-volume training schedule of runners often makes them frequent flyers in your clinic. They always seem to have a nagging injury that never quite goes away. You need a way to quickly identify and correct their dysfunctional movement patterns so that they can continue to do what they love.

Drs. Pierce and Murr will demonstrate innovative techniques to identify and tackle the most common running injuries. Backed by their research in the FIRST lab, you will learn today’s best strategies for working with runners.

This live webcast will feature motion capture techniques that will help you to target biomechanical inefficiencies and introduce corrective exercises. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of injury in this physically demanding sport. This live webcast is the bridge between exercise physiology, biomechanics and performance.

Learn strategies that will ultimately lead to fewer injuries and better performance for your runners – all while limiting over training and reducing injury.
