Successfully treat running injuries

How can you have greater confidence and success with running injuries?

When you treat injured runners, sometimes you can feel frustrated and disheartened at slow patient progress, feel like you are missing something or fighting a losing battle. You may also have difficulty getting patient buy-in and confidence that your treatment plan will be effective. Despite these challenges, the thought of learning more about running injuries has been right up there on your wishlist, because you love treating active patients. 

You want to help your patients overcome their injuries and get back to sport or activity as quickly as possible. You also want to have great treatment options, feel more confident, get better results, enjoy treating runners more, and be a leader in your area for running injuries.

THAT is what Tom Goom and I are going to help you accomplish today.

Successfully treating running injuries can be incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. You can help your injured runners to progress more quickly, and have increased confidence, satisfaction, and enjoyment at work.

How can you achieve success with running injury patients?

You can master the assessment and treatment of running injuries, with the help of the Running repairs online course, taught by Physiotherapist, expert teacher and clinician, Tom Goom.

The Running Repairs Online course is your path to great assessment and treatment of running injuries, incorporating videos and worksheets with the latest evidence, practical demonstrations of assessment tests, treatment techniques, exercises and exercise progressions. You will be guided through how to assess your runners from their initial appointment, commencing their treatment program and incorporating running assessment and gait retraining. You will receive access to case studies demonstrating how to apply clinical reasoning and treatment to your running injury patients, and how to manage your patients running and strengthening load. You will know which exercises your patients need to perform, how and when to progress their exercises, to full return to running.

You can immediately use the material from the Running Repairs Online course to develop simple and successful treatment programs. Your confidence and success with these patients will skyrocket, and you will enjoy treating running injuries more. Your improved results will build your reputation, resulting in word of mouth bringing in even more running patients to your practice, and a full list of motivated responsive patients. 

What you need is a course to help you master the assessment and treatment of running injuries.

When you enrol on the Running Repairs Online course, you will get complete access to all of the presentation and practical elements you would receive if you attended the face to face course, plus additional material unable to be covered during a single weekend.

You will be taken step by step through your assessment so you are clear and confident on how to use your assessment to guide your treatment and rehab program. 

You will have access to video demonstrations, examples and case studies of running assessment and gait retraining, so you can easily incorporate this into your assessment and treatment. 

Detailed videos on manual therapy techniques, exercises you can use with your patients and rehab progressions will help you tie this all together into a successful treatment program. 

We filmed the entire Running Repairs face to face course, and recruited an Australian national level 100m hurdler (Hannah) as our demonstration model. Hannah was perfect for Tom to demonstrate assessment tests, running assessment, running drills for your runners and athletes to use in their rehab, gait retraining, exercises and progressions that you can use with your runners. 

There was a lot of work involved in filming the entire course, and we also had a lot of fun! Tom used the opportunity to develop some incredible leg strength and speed….. To help Tom out with this, and to see how strong he really is, I put him to the test in the gym, which you can WATCH HERE.

Besides having a great time filming, we wanted to make the Running Repairs Online course really practical for you, so you could use it immediately with your runners in your clinic, so we planned out the best way for you to go through the course online.

How long do I have access to the course for?

Gold Running Repairs Online course enrolment will provide you with 12 months access to the current version of the course. If you choose a Platinum or Diamond course enrolment, you will have access to the presentations on an ongoing basis, including all future updates.

When new research or assessment and treatment techniques emerge, will I receive access to course updates?

Gold enrolment includes access to the current version of the course. Platinum and Diamond enrolments include access to ALL FUTURE UPDATES to the course.

What are the audio downloads?

Platinum and Diamond course enrolment provides you with audio downloads of the course presentations. These will be available to download to your Computer, Phone or iPod, to listen to whenever it suits you. When the course is updated, you will be able to download the updated audio files as well.

I am trying to enrol on the course, and I am getting a Whoops message. What should I do?

This is generally for one of two reasons
1. You need to sign in to first, as your email address and password was saved when you attempted to enrol. In this case, just choose Sign In first, and then go to this page.
2. Your enrolment was rejected by your bank. Occasionally banks will reject payments if it is the first time you have purchased online from a company. In this case, you may need to try a different credit card, or let your bank know it is ok for the transaction to go ahead.
I would suggest calling your bank (fraud services) to get them to approve payments to Clinical Edge on your credit card. When they give you the all clear, try logging into the Clinical Edge website, using this email address and the password you created.
Going to and re entering your credit card details
Sometimes people have had to call their bank twice if it didn’t work the first time, or wait a short period.
If these 2 steps don’t work, please let us know so we can help sort it out.

Will there be course handouts?

There sure will be. You will be able to download the full course handouts from within your dashboard.

Will I have access to the precourse Achilles presentations and handouts?

Yes. These will be available for you to view in your login, after you enrol.

What People are SayingCustomer Testimonials

The podcasts have been great for me to continue my CPD on the run - literally…. They have been a brilliant way to distract and keep me going whilst I pound the pavement/dirt track etc. I end my run feeling inspired and usually with some specific practical tips, and I have already worked out who I am going to put them into practice on.

Karine Meadley, Physiotherapist Eden Valley, Australia

The podcasts are extremely helpful for me. As a new graduate in the private practice setting, the podcasts assisted in bridging my knowledge gap from from what I had learnt at university to what was required as a competent private practice physiotherapist. I would highly recommend to all physiotherapists wanting to improve their evidence based knowledge in assessing and treating musculoskeletal conditions.


Daniel Piggott, Physiotherapist Bankstown, Australia
