Real Solutions for Rehabilitating Runners
Running is extensively characterized as an effective and efficient form of aerobic or anaerobic exercise, known to escalate cardio-pulmonary function and endurance. However, running often causes inflammation, micro-trauma, and various other injuries to the musculoskeletal system, which result in interruptions to training regimens and personal fitness goals. Rehabilitation professionals in many different settings are faced with the challenge of treating runners with any one of a multitude of acute to chronic injuries caused by this pastime. And for many of these clients, whether they run as a hobby or competitively, their top priority is getting back "on track" as quickly as possible—thus creating an even bigger challenge to treatment planning.

Rehabilitating and training athletes and other runners requires a complete understanding of pertinent anatomy, common injuries, and a variety of conditioning drills for runners. This one-day seminar provides the opportunity to develop effective strategies for aggressively treating common running-related injuries; preventing deconditioning and re-injury; and improving running speed and strength. Course participants will explore manual techniques and specific regimens for the core and upper and lower extremities to maintain or increase cardio-pulmonary endurance during the healing process. Through multiple hands-on lab sessions, interactive lecture, and multimedia technology, this class provides attendees with a solid grasp of "what to do and how to do it," including more creative options, when faced with various running injuries. The instructor's enthusiasm and passion for the content is truly infectious, so attendees leave with not only practical approaches and new techniques to implement immediately, but also an optimistic, fresh approach to healing and rehabilitating
