Date: Friday, January 25, 2019
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Intermediate

In the past decade, a large volume of published running biomechanics research has demonstrated the influence of kinematics and kinetics on running injury and recovery. Many clinicians find it difficult to translate this research into clinical practice, due to both practical and financial barriers. This session will discuss common barriers to measuring and altering biomechanics in a clinical setting, and will offer strategies to overcome challenges and provide practical means to incorporate research evidence, integrating the 3 pillars of evidence-based practiceā€¯individual clinical expertise, best external evidence, and patient values. The emphasis will be on clinical reasoning, measuring outcomes, and patient-centered care. Multiple case examples will demonstrate options in the clinical decision-making paradigm that can foster desired outcomes and bridge the gap between research and practice in patients with running injuries. Participants will be able to quickly implement several assessment techniques and intervention strategies in their clinical practice.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Explain the significance and clinical utility of running biomechanics evidence.

2. Identify barriers, and potential solutions, to using biomechanical evidence in practice.

3. Improve clinical decision-making paradigms and strategies to provide successful treatmentoutcomes in runners.

4. Consider and implement the 3 pillars of evidence-based practice appropriately whenworking with patients with running-related injuries.
