How can you identify the most important factors involved in your patients running injuries? During your rehabilitation of runners, which is most important to address - load, gait pattern, strength, foot strike, pelvic position, footwear, range of movement or other factors?
I wanted to discuss and debate these issues with a number of Physiotherapists that treat and research running injuries, so I have a very different format for you on this episode of the Physio Edge podcast - a group podcast.
In this episode of the Physio Edge podcast David Pope and the group discuss:
- When is it ok for your runners to continue running, and when do they need to stop
- Common myths around running retraining
- When is it important to change your patients foot strike?
- Which patient presentations and pathologies will be assisted with running retraining?
- How can you identify a suitable running load during rehab
- How can you incorporate running retraining into your rehab
- Which areas are important to running assessment
- How can you manage training load strength and conditioning
- When are plyometrics appropriate during rehabilitation
- Other factors that impact injury prognosis and duration
- What advice can you give new runners
- Which footwear should runners wear?
