Course Description

Running is one of the most popular forms of exercise, but one that is also rich with false beliefs about training, injury prevention and injury management. Perhaps that is why there is such a high prevalence of injuries amongst runners. This course outlines 10 of the most common myths about injury prevention, injury management and training.

After this course, the clinician will be better able to discuss and manage running injuries and training with their patients.

Learning Objectives:

1.After the presentation, participants will be able to explain the cause of most running injuries

2.After the presentation, participants will be able to appraise and prescribe appropriate footwear to their running patients

3.After the presentation, participants will be able to debate how running is not associated with a higher risk of knee osteoarthritis, but is actually beneficial

4.After the presentation, participants will be able to explain that within limits, higher running volume is not associated with higher injury rates

5.After the presentation, participants will be able to summarize how sleep, stress and diet influence running injuries
