Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Intermediate
This cosponsored session with the Running SIG of the Sports Physical Therapy Section and the Aquatic Physical Therapy Section will describe how attendees who treat common overuse running injuries can effectively incorporate aquatic- and land-based interventions into their current return-to-running program. A brief description of the most common overuse injuries, the epidemiology of, and typical causes of overuse running injuries will ensure common a priori knowledge. Subsequently, presenters will describe how the unique properties of water can be used during the early stages of rehabilitation using items found at a typical pool. As part of this session, attendees will learn how to monitor and modify intensity of exercises, how these intensities differ on land and in the water, and what research has shown regarding musculoskeletal, biomechanical, and physiological differences.
1. Examine prevalent overuse running injuries, their epidemiology, as well as typical risk factors/causes, and how the aquatic environment can modify these risk factors.
2. Implement aquatic-based interventions in early rehabilitation for patients with overuse running injuries.
3. Apply appropriate water-based therapeutic exercises to land-based training and return-to-running programs.
4. Analyze how to monitor and modify intensity of exercise in the water and how this relates/differs from land-based exercises.
