Treatment of Running Injuries Using Gait Analysis

Download the presentation slides.


In this free webinar, Dr. Reed Ferber, internationally recognized as an expert in running biomechanics and running injuries and author of Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis, provides an overview of the most recent research related to patellofemoral pain (PFP) and iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) and how analyzing a runner's gait biomechanics can help guide their clinical assessment to provide optimal treatment. It is well known that PFP and ITBS are the most common running-related injuries. In many cases, clinicians perform some form of gait analysis to better understand how the patient's underlying walking and running mechanics are related to aetiology of injury. However, the multifactorial nature of any running injury demands that the clinician be well trained and understand the interrelationships between gait biomechanics, anatomical alignment, muscular strength, and muscular flexibility.
