The seminar “New trends in the prevention of running injuries” is for you! Delivered on all five continents, it has taken thousands of health professionals by storm. Using the most recent scientific evidence, the instructors question several unjustified and widespread practices.
From diagnosis to treatment, including running gait analysis/retraining, detailed footwear analysis/prescription and appropriate load management, everything is presented in a structured way to ensure that registrants can readily apply evidence-based learnings.
In addition, you will be listed on The Running Clinic’s website, with a VIP access to regular literature updates. A great way to promote your services and educate your patients through reliable and accurate knowledge.

Full description of course objectives and schedule

After the course, participants will be able to, based on the most recent scientific evidence:

  • Apply the most important aspects of an injured runner’s assessment (subjective, objective)
  • Understand the biomechanics of running and specificities of different running techniques
  • Understand the links between anatomy, biomechanics, strength and pathologies
  • Understand the different categories of running footwear
  • Prescribe the most appropriate running shoes depending on the runner
  • Assess running biomechanics in a clinical setting
  • Apply the most efficient running gait retraining interventions
  • Select the appropriate treatment tool based on the stage of injury (protection vs. adaptation)
  • Learn how to apply the proper mechanical stress quantification to injured runners
  • Know when to prescribe stretching exercises
  • Decide on whether to recommend plantar orthoses or not for specific injuries
