Vital Performance Management

This course is MUST ATTEND for anyone who is interested in running!

This course is a two-day (16 hour) course that emphasizes putting the latest evidence into practice.

The course is led by Richard Willy, PT, PhD, a recognized expert in running-related injuries.

Attendees will leave with practical skills that will enable them to fully evaluate the injured runner and design a comprehensive training approach to maximize patient outcomes. This course emphasizes a theoretical framework for restoration of load capacity in the injured runner through optimal tissue loading.

Attendees will learn how to perform a running gait analysis using techniques that readily translate to various clinical settings. Attendees will also develop a clinical decision making process to determine when and if gait retraining is indicated, including how to use simple wearable devices to assist with optimizing patient outcomes.

There will be an emphasis on hands-on, laboratory experiences to put into practice the didactic components of this course so that attendees can immediately put into practice newly learned skills.

1. Recognize runners who are most at risk for running injuries and when to intervene with appropriate prevention programs.

2. Describe the “envelope of function” and how it can help guide clinical decision making and training programs.

3. Conduct a valid and repeatable clinical gait evaluation. Evidence-based best practices will be emphasized.

4. Be able to make recommendations regarding shoe prescription

5. Contrast heel strike running with forefoot running: Does evidence support one over the other?

6. Describe a simple and clinically relevant classification system for gait mechanics that may contribute to injury.

7. Recognize psychosocial and training factors that contribute to the etiology of running injuries: Is biomechanics important?

8. Explain why therapeutic exercise is key to enhancing load tolerance but is insufficient to alter abnormal movement patterns.

9.Design a return to running program, based on the runner’s diagnosis and their goals.

10. Utilize appropriate verbal, visual, and tactile cues and feedback schedules for a gait retraining intervention

11. Based on identified impairments, develop a treatment program for runners with common running injuries including patellofemoral pain, iliotibial band pain, lower leg and foot stress fractures, and tendinopathies.
