Learn how you can help your patients to determine the biomechanical cause of their running injury and prevent future injury with just a treadmill and smart phone. You will learn how to analyse movement dysfunction both dynamically (while running) and through functional movement assessment.
This workshop focuses on movement biomechanics in running and how it affects the entire kinetic chain. You will be presented with evidence-based research findings, particularly relating to cadence and its effect on ground reaction forces and injury risk. The most common overuse injuries, including patellofemoral pain syndrome, iliotibial band friction syndrome, tibial stress syndrome and lower limb tendinopathy will be discussed.
Particular emphasis will be placed on analysing both optimal and aberrant biomechanics using video analysis and functional movement analysis and then correcting movement dysfunction through movement re-education, movement re-patterning and specific strength-conditioning exercise. The course is highly practical with a significant hands-on component.
Melissa Vincent is both a Physiotherapist (graduated with Masters of Physiotherapy in 2016) and an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) with 17 years’ experience in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Due to her dual qualifications, Mel treats patients with acute, post-acute and persisting pain/conditions. Mel is an avid recreational runner and treats many patients with running injuries or wanting to improve their running performance. She has experience in video analysis of running, real-time running technique adjustments, biomechanical analysis related to running, exercise prescription to assist recovery from injury/injury prevention/and performance, running training programs and footwear prescription and advice (in conjunction with local running shoe stores).
Mel is also improving her skills and attends as many running-training courses as possible, to ensure she has the most up to date knowledge to assist her patients and students alike.
