Know Running Lecture Series

Attention all Sports Physicians, Physiotherpists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Podiatrists, and other AHPs: We Invite You To Keep Up With Your Patients in 2017

Introduction to Know Running

A clinician's eye view of running today, and in the future

To Know Running is critical: whether it's ParkRun™, ToughMudder™, or your local half marathon, participation in running events continues to attract large numbers nationwide. As a result, clinicians are supporting their clients more than ever to take up an active lifestyle, combat diabetes and rising obesity levels, and help many to use events such as Race For Life™ as the catalyst for change. Knowing how to support their needs is complex.
In parallel, the running industry is changing fast. Running clubs are at bursting point, and new information around ‘running re-training’ and ‘barefoot running’ have left runners' networks, shops and magazines full of pseudo science. There's a scarcity of general good principles, applicable to all. Running shoes are evolving more quickly than at any time in the past 40 years, too, and with the dawn of printing technology for wearables, where are we heading? Spend the day with us (6 CPD Hours*), and Know Running.

Content and Eligibility

If you're a sports physician, physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor, podiatrist, or any AHP managing clients who are runners, this season of day-long lectures has been developed specifically to support you. Shining a light on running, we'll be addressing these key components and technologies:

  • What is the history of running; how and why did we evolve to run?
  • What makes a difference in running technique?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses in the way running research is performed?
  • What are the attributes of trainers, and how do you pick the right trainer for you and your client?

The day after this course you will be answering all these questions for your clients, and will know what is on the world of running's roadmap. Your treatment options will be greater and your care more comprehensive as a result.

Anatomy Of Running

How did we evolve to run and what are the key factors of running true to all of us

What Do We Know

How the science of running is developed, giving you the power to assess new science as it develops. Help your client understand what is good for them, not just jump on the latest trend

The Power Of Knowing

The world of running shoes is changing fast. Terms like ‘stability’, ‘neutral’ and ‘motion control’ are now meaningless so how do your recommend trainers for your clients

Goodies to Take Home
