Running Analysis, Functional Movement Analysis & Running Re-Education

Learn the invaluable skill of analysing running biomechanics and identifying inefficient running patterns that can lead to injury. This online course will teach you the practitioner, how to identify movement patterns in running that contribute to injury and inefficiency, rather than relying on software. Once you can identify the issues, you will then learn coaching cues to enable you to re-educate basic running technique.

Delegates will be analysed as case studies. You will learn, step-by-step, what movement patterns to look for. You will also learn the DMS Functional Movement Analysis for runners and non-runners, to identify compensatory movement, single-leg discrepancies, and muscle activation issues. You will then learn how to re-educate correct basic running technique using The Running School Movement Repatterning Method which has helped over 75,000 runners.

The focus of this course is not only on lower limb biomechanics but looks at full-body biomechanics (from head to toe), which is often overlooked. Further, the course explores the most widely used interventions by practitioners and dispels some myths on the effect these have on rehabilitation and running efficiency. You will also consider case studies of both recreational and elite athletes and explore the interventions that were applied to make them more efficient and faster.

We will provide you with an overview of the evidence and the latest research behind changing running technique and movement patterns.
