Identifying how much running each of your patients can perform (their load capacity) during their rehabilitation is a skill. This podcast will help you develop your load management skills, and know how much running your individual patients should perform at each stage of their rehabilitation.

In this podcast with Tom Goom, you will discover:

  • What is load capacity?
  • How do we identify your patient’s running capacity?
  • How are your patient’s progressing in their rehabilitation, relative to where they want to be?
  • How can you identify what your patients goals are, so that you can help tie this into a rehab program?
  • What questions can you ask your patients to assess load capacity and identify the right amount of load?
  • What objective tests can you use to help identify your patient’s load capacity?
  • How should you adapt your testing with different pathology?
  • What tests can you perform to identify your patient’s load capacity if your patient has an Achilles Tendinopathy?
  • What measures can we use to identify your patient’s running performance?

This podcast is the first in a series of podcasts over the next few months with Tom Goom, where we will help to develop your assessment and treatment skills, while improving your results with runners.
