Running Treatment Rationale: Developing and teaching clinical treatment strategies & exercise progressions from the neuromuscular and biomechanical demands. “Understanding the Function of the Dysfunction”

Therapy Network Seminars

Format(s):   Home-study
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy / Athletic Training
Contact Hours:   1.5
Registration Fee:   $52

Identify objective measures & functional tests that correlate with the biomechanical demands Identify methods to translate those demands into principles for exercise progression Identify key motor learning evidence to support clinical exercise progression rational Identify the clinical concept of the “the function of the dysfunction” as a clinical thinking building block Identify a basic exercise progression & freedom for adaptation that is applicable to a broad spectrum of running injuries by moving beyond strengthening by teaching function Identify the basic biomechanical demands for successful running

Target Audience

Confirmation Notes
An Email Confirmation will be sent with link to join the webinar and instructions on how to do so upon receipt of tuition.

Review basic biomechanical demands unique to running and apply those demands to biomechanical screens. Create relationships of screen components to pre-requisite motor learning tasks for running efficiency. Understand the “Function of the Dysfunction” and its relationship to common running injuries. Review related motor learning evidence & concepts into teaching a clinical exercise progression . Develop a model for exercise progression that moves beyond strengthening into teaching function Discuss how current research & running techniques are reflected throughout the clinical progression thought process Progress through video examples of a basic clinical running exercise framework demonstrating the application of individualized motor learning goals to guide the exercise progression. Review the model for exercise progression that moves beyond strengthening into teaching function.

This course will focus on the clinical application of current research for running rehabilitation & performance enhancement. We will use an analysis of basic bio-mechanical demands of running along with current research on running efficiency to synthesize a clinical exercise framework. We then incorporate concepts of teaching for individualized motor learning into the exercise progression. Our goal is to tackle two of the largest clinical challenges most therapists have on a daily basis; how to bridge research into exercise and how to teach & progress exercise so our patient achieves skill transference into the desired functionality instead of just gaining competency in the taught exercise. After this webinar, it is our goal that you will have a both the exercise progression & clinical thought framework to guide improvement in runner’s at all levels. While a basic exercise progression will be provided, the dominant theme will be the practical application of “what you do is less important than how you do it” to clinical practice.
