In this course, we will introduce the very latest evidence about common lower extremity overuse injuries and link them to clinically available running gait analysis technology. We will enable practitioners to develop case specific hypothesis driven clinical exams including fitness testing to hone in on efficacious intervention including manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, fitness training and running gait drill training.
After completing this course, participants should be able to:
- Link evidence of tendinopathy to the patient specific movement problem.
- Narrow the broad scope of movement analysis by developing a hypothesis driven, phase specific analysis informed by the tissue stress model and the patient’s presentation.
- Utilize the movement analysis to drive objective examination planning with relevant hypothesis driven performance tests, clinical tests and measures.
- Interpret the movement analysis, tests and measures to differentiate among skill versus physical capacity impairments as sources of the patient problem.
- Develop and implement running specific intervention including manual therapy, skill re-training strategies via phase specific drills, and running specific physical capacity exercise.
