Running Injuries - Examination, Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Interventions is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Dec 07 - 08, 2019 at Heinz Rehab Hospital, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is for PT, PTA, AT. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credits.
This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 contact hours/1.8 ceu’s for therapists licensed in New York, Illinois or the District of Columbia.
Conference Description :
This two-day intermediate level lecture and hands-on laboratory course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines for the examination, differential diagnosis and treatment interventions for running-related injuries. New research on how to accurately diagnose and treat plantar heel pain, Achilles tendinosis, Achilles tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, stress fractures and muscular strains will be reviewed. An emphasis on the utilization of video gait analysis as a key diagnostic and treatment tool will be incorporated throughout the course. Hands-on laboratory break-out sessions will focus on performing a functional biomechanical examination specific to runners, fabricating orthotic devices, and performing and interpreting selected special tests for the hip, knee and ankle with an emphasis on their application to runners. Case studies will be utilized throughout the course to illustrate key concepts. This interactive course will allow course participants to enhance their diagnostic, examination and treatment skills of injured runners. The overall course objective is to provide course participants with a thorough understanding of running biomechanics and the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines in order to effectively and efficiently enhance the quality of patient outcomes. A comprehensive course packet will include pictures, references and clinical pearls for quick reference in the clinic.
Conference Objectives are :
• Explain the relationship between lower extremity anatomy and physiology and running biomechanics.
• Perform and independent and accurate functional runner-specific lower extremity evaluation.
• Discuss normal running mechanics and apply this understanding to successfully treating injured runners.
• Identify and apply the latest evidence-based approaches to evaluating and treating the following common running injuries: plantar heel pain, Achilles tendonopathy, medial tibial stress syndrome, stress fractures, chronic exertional compartment syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome and lateral hip pain.
• Perform an independent assessment of a running two-dimensional video gaitanalysis with emphasis on breaking down a runner’s form from the anterior, lateral and posterior views.
• Analyze and correlate biomechanical examination findings with a two-dimensional video gait analysis in order to apply evidence-based running-specific exercises to treat the runner’s biomechanical impairments.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
