The Biomechanics Lab says
Everything you need to know to assess and treat runners in clinical practice in 2016. We take the knowledge generated in the Lab and help you apply it into clinical practice!

Course outline

Session 1 – Principles of athlete screening & determinants of performance

This session will provide a clinical template to assess the runner. A method of screening the athlete for injury risk will be demonstrated, as well as a discussion of considerations in the literature that affect the performance of runners such as alterations in human physiology, 3D biomechanics, speed, footwear, strength etc. Participants will have the opportunity screen each other in small groups to gain practical experience with the template.



Session 2 - Consideration in the development of common running related injuries

With a particular focus on biomehcanical gait patterns, this session will delve into literature to help understand mechanisms of common lower limb injury. Data from the gait lab will help understand the biomehcnaics of each segment of the lower limb during running at varying speeds, before we begin to explore features relating to hamstring pathology, iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS), anterior knee pain, medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), Achilles tendinopathy, plantar fascioapthy and metatarsal stress.



Session 3 – Principles of exercise prescription and rehabilitation.

This session will focus on load management, and provide the background knowledge and template to accurately prescribe programs to condition runners in practice, as well as get them back running towards their own individual goals. Practical demonstrations of a staged S&C program will occur, focussing on core stability and dynamic control of the lower limb as it relates to the runner. Considerations in establishing training programs and return to running strategies will be provided.
