- Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis ebook
- Online video clips
- Online continuing education exam
Early chapters introduce the basics of running-related injuries, foot mechanics, and shoe selection. The book then progresses to knee and hip mechanics, ways to influence gait mechanics, and technical aspects of video gait analysis. Using a detailed joint-by-joint analysis, the ebook pinpoints common problem areas for runners and describes protocols for treatment.
Later chapters present documented clinical examples and case studies of injured runners to guide professionals through a detailed biomechanical analysis. An overview chapter summarizes the interrelationships of movement patterns at each joint with anatomical, strength, flexibility, and kinetic chain factors.
Accompanying the course is an online video library featuring 33 clips that demonstrate 15 of the biomechanical patterns discussed in the ebook.
Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.
