Running injuries occur due to a number of intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Running biomechanics and kinematic patterns contribute to the way the body absorbs ground forces. Poor running form can significantly increase the size of these forces and result in damaging tissue and joint loading. Identifying the primary error in a runners biomechanics can help to develop a management plan to comprehensively address their symptoms.

Aims

The aim of this course is to introduce the learner to common running biomechanical errors as seen in 2D and 3D Video analysis.

Running injuries occur due to a number of intrinsic and extrinsic factors and developing a comprehensive plan of care to rehabilitate a running injury can be a complicated process. A detailed assessment of the runner will help to identify the source of symptoms as well as any contributing factors involved. This will allow the therapist to develop an individualised plan of care that addresses the runners unique needs.

Running is a hugely popular activity – but many runners overdo it, suffer injuries as a result, and then turn to us as clinicians to sort them out – as quickly as possible. 

This course will help you learn about the common risk factors for running overuse and how to prevent them. 

Also described are the most common running-related injuries including patellofemoral pain and iliotibial band syndromes and their biomechanics and prevention.

Excuse the pun but the feet are the foundation for running mechanics. If you are interested in knowing more about running mechanics and how this affects virtually the entire body, you cannot ignore the feet. 

This e-Learning course is the foundation for running mechanics and will provide you with a systematic method for clinical gait assessment and so much more.

Matching a foot and shoe is a process that requires thought, scientific measurement, and rationale. Though the research on shoe selection is still incomplete, shoe selection based on foot structure and measures of forefoot orientation, arch height and rear foot standing posture can aid in injury prevention.

This course offers information on the types of running shoes, arationale and overall paradigm for shoe fitting using scientific methodology, as well as scientific literature related to orthotics.

Thank you so much - was a good refresher course summing up all aspects.  Good value for my practice.  Anni Gerryts, Biokineticist, Pretoria 

Great article - groin pain is often considered as not something a podiatrist would treat. I've had loads of success in treating groins as part of the team attending to the patient.  Excellent value for my practice.  Nelfrie Kemp, Podiatrist, Umhlanga Ridge


Chronic groin pain is a common problem in athletes. The multifactorial nature and the various anatomical structures that contribute to groin pain have made the condition difficult to prevent and manage. Early detection and intervention are the keys to optimal management and prevention of chronic injury. This course provides the clinician and podiatrist in particular with an understanding of the entity, focuses on the biomechanical risks associated with groin pain from a lower extremity perspective and introduces the role of podiatry as an effective adjunct to the multi-disciplinary groin management team.
