Integrating Science Into the Treatment of Running Injuries

End Date: 4/5/2019End Time: 6:30 PM
Event Description
A lecture by leading expert on running injuries:
Irene S. Davis, PhD, PT, FAPTA

Overuse musculoskeletal Injuries are common among runners. Understanding these injuries promotes effective treatment strategies. It’s well accepted that the etiology of running injuries is multifactorial, and that abnormal running mechanics contribute to running injuries. This presentation will focus on a scientific approach to developing treatment strategies that address abnormal running mechanics. Our approach involves: (1) examining the role of abnormal mechanics in running injuries, (2) developing interventions to mitigate these mechanics, (3) assessing the efficacy of our interventions and (4) translating these interventions to the clinic. This process provides the foundation for evidence-based practice and is applicable to other patient populations.
