CLINICAL RUNNING ESSENTIALS

A 1-day crash course to give rehab professionals the framework to migrate distance runners out of the medical system and back to consistent training.

Runners are a tricky bunch to work as their life often revolves around running. When training is going well life seems to flow. Unfortunately, it seems to only be a matter of time before pain and/or injury rear their head and training gets disrupted or even comes to a halt. This fast becomes a slippery slope as a runner starts to lose their grip. That’s where we come in as rehab professionals and no one is in a better equipped to help runners troubleshoot and reclaim their running!

I don’t know about you, but my didactic training left me ill-prepared to manage runners. Despite being a runner myself and having graduated from a world-class PT program, I learned that I was overconfident in managing runners. 

Nothing was more embarrassing than giving a runner the greenlight back to training only to hear they came hobbling home. Not only did they lose confidence in themselves but also in me as their therapist. Double fail!

This put me on a journey to figure out how to best help runners. There are few things that I enjoy more than sharing my perspective on this topic. This is why I developed Clinical Running Essentials.

Bones, Tendons, Weights, & Whistles

A 2-day masterclass for clinicians, who are managing runners dealing with lower limb tendinopathy and bone stress injuries (BSIs).

To run, bones need to tolerate strain and tendons must store and release energy. Considering the sheer training volume of most avid runners, it’s no surprise that they often become afflicted with tendon disorders and/or BSIs.

Any clinician who has been in the trenches with runners will attest to the challenges of managing these conditions. Talk about a lot of moving parts! And let’s not forget about having to contend with the “train at all costs” mentality of runners and their tendency to fall prey to tips and tricks.

Having worked with countless runners, we realize that helping a runner get on the other side of a tendon disorder or BSI is no trivial task.

Clinicians must have command of multiple domains while understanding their role as part of a team, which is particularly important in managing BSIs as they often take a village.

Looking back on our careers, we’ll be the first to admit that we were naive when it came to managing runners presenting with tendon disorders and BSIs. This is why Nathan Carlson and I teamed up to develop Bones, Tendons, Weights, & Whistles.

NOTE: This course is best suited for experienced clinicians (>3years of experience in clinical care) and is held twice a year in person and once in a virtual format. The in-person course takes place over a weekend and the virtual course is split up into three, 5-hour blocks separated by two weeks.
