    OVERVIEW

    Running continues to be one of the most popular sports, despite the fact that up to 70 percent of runners will sustain overuse injuries during any one-year period. Therefore, it is imperative for certified professionals working with athletes and clients to stay informed on running mechanics, injury prevention, and optimal treatment methods. Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis CE Course is a convenient text and exam bundle that presents this critical information and allows readers to earn continuing education credit.

    Referencing over 250 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis supplies professionals with an array of clinical applications. Certified professionals will come away with an understanding of ways to build on standard practice while gaining a new appreciation for the performance benefits that gait analysis can provide. The course has the following features:
    A discussion of the complexities of running biomechanics as they relate to muscular strength, flexibility, and anatomical alignment for the purpose of providing an advanced clinical assessment of gait
    Guidelines for assessing, treating, and preventing a range of common and not-so-common running injuries
    A detailed analysis of running biomechanics to help professionals identify the interactions of the kinetic chain and the causes of overuse injuries
    An online video library featuring 33 clips that demonstrate 15 of the biomechanical patterns discussed in the text
    Documented clinical examples to help practitioners apply the wealth of information in the book to their own practice
    Early chapters introduce readers to the basics of running-related injuries, foot mechanics, and shoe selection before progressing to discussions of knee and hip mechanics, ways to influence gait mechanics, and technical aspects of video gait analysis. Via a detailed joint-by-joint analysis, the book pinpoints common problem areas for runners and describes protocols for treatment. Later chapters present case studies of injured runners to guide professionals through a detailed biomechanical analysis and treatment recommendations, and an overview chapter summarizes the interrelationships of movement patterns at each joint with anatomical, strength, flexibility, and kinetic chain factors.

    At the conclusion of the course, a 20-question exam on the content of the text follows. Upon successful completion of the exam, a certificate of completion may be retrieved for submission to a certifying organization.
