Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis Online CE Course With Print Book

Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis Online CE Course With Print Book

Author:
$79.00 USD

Product Format



    This package includes the following:
    • Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis book
    • Online video clips
    • Online continuing education exam
    Referencing over 250 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts, Running Mechanics and Gait Analysis provides a comprehensive review of the research and clinical concepts related to gait and injury analysis. Offering an expansive array of clinical applications, athletic trainers and physical therapists will come away with an understanding of ways to build on standard practice, while coaches and personal trainers will gain a new appreciation for the performance benefits that gait analysis can provide.

    Early chapters introduce the basics of running-related injuries, foot mechanics, and shoe selection. The book then progresses to knee and hip mechanics, ways to influence gait mechanics, and technical aspects of video gait analysis. Using a detailed joint-by-joint analysis, the book pinpoints common problem areas for runners and describes protocols for treatment.

    Later chapters present documented clinical examples and case studies of injured runners to guide professionals through a detailed biomechanical analysis. An overview chapter summarizes the interrelationships of movement patterns at each joint with anatomical, strength, flexibility, and kinetic chain factors.

    Accompanying the course is an online video library featuring 33 clips that demonstrate 15 of the biomechanical patterns discussed in the book.

    Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.
