The following are active courses that Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation is offering for Continuing Education.
March 27, 2021
Speaker: Bryan Heiderscheit, PT, PhD, FAPTA
Successful treatment of running injuries has remained somewhat elusive to orthopedic and sports medicine clinicians. Through a greater understanding of the associated mechanics, advances in prevention and rehabilitation strategies can be made that will reduce the incidence rate of these common injuries. This advanced course will provide a thorough review of the most recent scientific findings related to the examination, diagnosis and treatment of running injuries. Discussion will focus on the current literature pertaining to running mechanics and injury, and the clinical decision-making needed to achieve superior outcomes. The use of video analysis as part of the running gait examination will be emphasized, and novel strategies to modify running mechanics will be presented as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment. Multiple case studies will be integrated to illustrate concepts and promote idea application. The overall objective is to provide each participant with an understanding of the current knowledge pertaining to the management of running-related injuries, with techniques that can be immediately applied in clinical practice.
Attendance of part 1 is not required to attend part 2 that will be offered on November 6, 2021. Registration for part 2 will open in May 2021.
This course is open to PT, PTA, ATC, LAT, and Students
