TEXTBOOK (provided): Anatomy for Runners by Jay Dicharry
REFERENCE APPS: Muscle System Pro III, Apple App Store; Skeletal System Pro III, Apple App Store
ATTIRE: Running apparel and shoes. Weather is mild to warm and sunny in January in Southern California. Temperatures range for mid 40s early morning to high 60s in the afternoon.
Healthy Running for medical and fitness professionals focuses on the energetics of running, injury evaluation and treatment. Content is evidence based with numerous case scenarios and hands-on analysis to apply concepts learned.
Saturday sessions includes the anthropologic basis of running, aerobic development, recovery principals and practice, overtraining syndrome, coordination and peaking, nutrition for health and performance, warm up and cool down.
The role of footwear on runners is examined, including the evolution of running shoes, design, technology and the relationship to injury.
The afternoon workshop addresses strength training, range of motion/mobility and motor function.
Day two examines the injured runner, the triad of running injuries, tissue specificity, anatomy, biomechanics and clinical evaluation of mobility and strength.
The afternoon workshop assesses running from a clinical perspective, prescription of strength, mobility, and gait cues based on specific findings. Stability, core work, mobility and stretching principles area addressed.
The course ends with medical issues for runners, including heat illness, physiology, and treatment. Newton Running Coaches completing this course are eligible to receive the Newton Running Level 2 coach certification. Certification is at no additional cost.
Primary care physicians, sports medicine physicians, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers, coaches and other professionals interested in maintaining and promoting the health of runners.
After this course, the participant should be able to:
- Discuss the pathophysiological process behind running injuries and the new treatment concepts relating to these pathologies.
- Improve hisher clinical efficiency through a better knowledge of objective diagnostic assessments and their place in the clinical exam of an injured runner.
- Discuss the new theories behind tissue stress, adaptation and preventive stress.
- Recognize the relationship between running biomechanics and the risk of injuries.
- Build a program to help an injured runner return to running using the theoretical principles relating to different energy systems, cross-training and warm-up.
- Discuss the science behind running shoe technology, plantar orthoses, flexibility and strengthening in the prevention and treatment of running injuries.
- Discuss the science and practical application of aerobic development, speed training, and periodization.
- Describe the principles and be able to teach efficient running form including supplemental drills.
- Evaluate a patient for movement dysfunction during a clinical visit and provide simple corrective measures.
- Discuss Clinical Injury assessment and exam and specific corrective exercises.
- Describe practical gait analysis, cues, and corrections.
- Discuss Nutrition for health and performance.
- Prescribe footwear to complement the patient’s current movement pattern and how to safely transition them to more functional footwear.
