Running Rehab, from Pain to Performance

Oct 5, 2020 at 08:30 — 17:30 (BST)
Organiser: Running-Physio

Join us for a 1 day conference with 5 great speakers covering running rehab from start to finish line.

We’ve given the content careful consideration to maximise its practical application in clinic. The conference will progress in line with how we would treat injured runners, starting with initial assessment, load management and education. Then we’ll explore exercise prescription and progression before moving on to considering orthoses, gait analysis and optimising performance. We’ll share a common case study throughout to illustrate this process for an injured athlete.

Our speakers...

Tom Goom

Tom (AKA ‘The Running Physio’) is a runner and physiotherapist who specialises in the treatment and prevention of running injuries. His website has gained a worldwide audience with over 6.5 million page views! His work has been featured in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, Runner’s World and a host of online platforms. Tom remains an active clinician and believes in the importance of translating research findings into effective treatments for our patients. He's recently published a narrative review paper on Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy in the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy and has co-authored a number of papers on running gait analysis and retraining.

Tom will be presenting on assessment of runners as well as load management and athlete education.

Claire Minshull

Claire is one of the most highly respected rehabilitation and conditioning specialists in the UK. She has worked in the field of sports medicine and health for 20 years as a Senior Lecturer, Researcher, Consultant and as a Practitioner. She has designed, led and managed major clinical and nonclinical research trials, supervised PhD students, and has published over 30 research papers in leading peer-reviewed sports medicine journals. Claire’s area of expertise means that she uniquely spans the gap between the physiology of conditioning and physiotherapeutic rehabilitation.  She is Principal Researcher at the RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital and Director of Get Back To Sport.

Claire will be presenting on exercise prescription and S&C for runners 

Ian Griffiths

Ian is a Sports Podiatrist with 17 years clinical experience, and is a Fellow of the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (Glasgow). He has lectured all over the world on the topic of foot and ankle biomechanics and his current research interest is the mechanisms of effect of foot orthoses. He is a wildly enthusiastic but viciously average runner. 

Ian will be presenting on the role of podiatry and orthoses in running injury management.

Chris Napier

Chris is a sport physiotherapist with Athletics Canada and Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia. His research focus is on the use of biomechanics and wearable technology to monitor training loads and prevent injuries in runners. His recent book, Science of Running, provides advice on how to improve our performance and prevent injury by understanding the science behind the most popular activity on the planet.

Chris is travelling from Vancouver to present on running gait analysis and retraining and discuss his research findings in this field.

Alex Hutchinson

Alex is a journalist (@sweatscience) who writes about the science of endurance and athletic performance. His most recent book, the 2018 New York Times bestseller Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, explores the mental and physical factors that determine our limits. Prior to becoming a journalist, he worked as a postdoctoral physicist and competed for the Canadian national team in track, cross-country, and mountain running. He lives in Toronto.

Alex will be discussing the art and science of post-exercise recovery and how to improve running performance.
