The purpose of this session is to provide clinicians with scientifically supported strategies for the analysis and interpretation of running mechanics to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of running-related injuries. Clinically feasible techniques using low-cost technology are introduced. A systematic approach to the analysis and interpretation of the movement system during running is presented, as well as strategies on how to correct movement impairments. A variety of patient cases are included to promote understanding and synthesis of content.
