Integrating Strength & Conditioning with the Rehabilitation of Runners

Do you want to reduce the injury risk of your runners?

Do you want to improve their performance following rehab?

Participation in running is at an all time high. Running however, is a high-risk activity with an injury rate of up to 50 – 85  % during any 12 month period. Integrating strength and conditioning in the rehabilitation of runners can REDUCE injury risk and IMPROVE performance.

There will be a particular focus on functional screening and movement analysis to guide S&C exercise prescription and progression. There will be special emphasis on assessment of running gait with discussion on running re-training, step rate (cadence) manipulation, mirror re-training and mobility drills to improve running economy.

Presented by Glen and Ben, this highly practical course will give you the skills and knowledge to integrate advanced training methods (plyometric, dynamic mobility and running drills) in the rehabilitation of runners and prescribe conditioning programmes with a deep understanding of how they affect pathology and performance. Plyometrics is a critical intervention for any patient who wishes to return to impact activities such as running and has shown to improve performance and reduce injury risk. These runner-specific conditioning programmes will enable your clients to become faster, stronger and more efficient runners.

Learning Outcomes
