When the Feet hit the Ground...Running

Course Description: This running injury management and prevention course is a two-day, 15 contact hour physical therapy continuing education seminar on lower quarter running related injuries. It’s focus on biomechanics, assessment, prevention, and both traumatic, and overuse injuries is designed to enhance your knowledge of the running athlete and their related injuries and assist you in getting your patients “up to speed”.


The faculty will present current and clinically useful evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques for running injury prevention. Course participants will receive:

·         Comprehensive, foundational anatomical and biomechanical content

·         Overview of a novel movement assessment system, and examination techniques specific to the running athlete.

·         Specific intervention strategies for management of running related musculoskeletal dysfunction.

·         Examination of foot biomechanics, running style, as well as learning to perform clinically relevant video gait analysis.


The running rehab injury prevention course provides updated information on injuries common to the runner, including pathologies of the hip, knee, lower leg, foot and ankle. Information on footwear and orthotics is interwoven with other varied specialty interventions and clinical pearls that can be used to achieve immediate results. 

Speaker: Paul Drumheller, PT, MPT, OCS, SCS, CSCS; Robyn Smith, MS, PT, SCS, CGFI-M2
