Physiotherapy Course Summary:
Presented by :
Benoy Mathew (MSc MAACP MCSP HPC Registered)
Glen Robbins (MSc MMACP MCSP HPC Registered)
Day1: Functional Screening & Strength Training
Day 2: Plyometrics & Running Re-training
This highly practical course provides a unique opportunity to integrate an evidence based approach to injury prevention and performance enhancement in the management of running injuries. There will be a particular focus on functional screening and movement analysis to guide exercise prescription and progression. Various training models and exercise regimes (Single leg training, Posterior Chain Strength, Hip Stabilisation, Dynamic Core Strength training) will be explored.
There will be a practical demonstration of running analysis to identify inefficient running patterns and develop interpretation skills and correct basic running technique if indicated. Particular emphasis will be placed on analysing running biomechanics using Video Analysis and then correcting movement dysfunction through movement re-education and movement re-patterning, utilising a variety of tools. The evidence behind and practical application of running retraining and adjunctive interventions are also explored.
•Develop practical skills for functional assessment and movement analysis in runners for risk stratification and to guide exercise progression.
•Explore important strength training principles and safe exercise prescription of advanced exercises and integrate evidence based injury prevention tools as part of lower limb rehabilitation in runners. Practical application of conditioning strategies (Plyometrics, dynamic mobility, running drills) and progression in runners.
•Learn to analyse running gait (treadmill-based) using video analysis and identify kinematic and kinetic variables, associated with injury.
•Develop practical skills and clinical reasoning processes to apply running re-training interventions in the context of injury prevention and special focus on step rate (cadence) manipulation, mirror re-training, auditory cues and mobility drills to improve running economy.
Light refreshments will be provided. Food and drink can be purchased onsite or you are welcome to bring your own.
There may be an oportunity for delegates to use the David Lloyd pool/gym facilities immediately after the course. This will be confirmed on the day.
