This course will teach clinicians the latest research on running biomechanics and equip them with the necessary tools to perform a comprehensive observational running analysis for runners of all levels. The instructors will break down the critical phases of running, highlight key events, and relate abnormal biomechanics to common overuse injuries and performance issues. By the completion of this course, participants will be prepared to perform a comprehensive observational running analysis within 5 minutes. Lecture series with a short breakout lab.
