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 include the anthropologic basis of running, aerobic development, recovery principles 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.
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.
