Course Description

Formerly called 'Functional Biomechanics of Running', this is our most popular course.  Learn the invaluable skill of analysing running biomechanics and identifying inefficient running patterns that can lead to injury. This course will teach you, the practitioner, how to identify movement patterns in running that contribute to injury and inefficiency, rather than relying on software. Once you can identify the issues, you will then learn coaching cues to enable you to re-educate basic running technique.

This practical course will equip you to use these skills immediately upon returning to your clinic or centre. Delegates will be analyzed as case studies. 

You will learn, step-by-step, what movement patterns to look for. You will also learn the DMS Functional Movement Analysis for runners and non-runners, to identify compensatory movement, single-leg discrepancies, and muscle activation issues.  

Finally, you will learn how to re-educate basic running technique using The Running School Movement Repatterning Method which has helped over 20,000 runners.

The focus of this course is not only on lower limb biomechanics but looks at full body biomechanics (from head to toe), which is often overlooked. Further, the day explores the most widely used interventions by practitioners and dispels some myths on the effect these have on rehabilitation and running efficiency.  You will also consider case studies of both recreational and elite athletes and explore the interventions that were applied to make them more efficient and faster.

We will provide you with an overview of the evidence and the latest research behind changing running technique and movement patterns.

All delegates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completing the course.
