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.

On this podcast, we have Tom Goom, Greg Lehman and Dr Christian Barton all in one virtual room discussing and debating the merits of the various approaches to running injuries.

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?
