The Science of Running Medicine Symposium
March 30-31, 2019 | The Johns Hopkins Hospital | Turner Auditorium
This evidence-based symposium will bring together top clinical researchers in the field of biomechanics to discuss and debate contemporary topics related to running biomechanics, running-related injuries, and the rehabilitation of the injured runner.
Cost: $550 / student rate $400
Physical therapists, athletic trainers, physicians, chiropractors, physician assistants, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants. This course content is not intended for use by any participants outside the scope of their license or regulation.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the biomechanics of running
- Conduct a basic running evaluation using video methods
- Integrate findings from the physical examination and video analysis to determine appropriate injury management
- Recommend specific rehabilitation exercises to target impairments of common running-related injuries
- Recommend effective strategies to modify the running form and determine when it is appropriate to do so as part of the rehabilitation plan
