Course Description

3 key points:

  1. Learn how to assess running gait and apply evidence-based running gait modifications to address different injuries;
  2. Learn about the different types of running footwear and provide evidence-based recommendations depending on injury status;
  3. Learn the latest evidence on treatment of running injuries including load management and exercises

This 2-day course runs from 8:00am - 6:00pm Saturday, and 8:00am to 5:00pm Sunday.

This course is open to Physicians, Chiropractors, Athletic Therapists and Kinesiologists and other health care pracitioners as well.

• Apply the most important aspects of an injured runner’s assessment (subjective, objective)
• Understand the biomechanics of running and specificities of different running techniques
• Understand the links between anatomy, biomechanics, strength and pathologies
• Understand the different categories of running footwear
• Prescribe the most appropriate running shoes depending on the runner
• Assess running biomechanics in a clinical setting
• Apply the most efficient running gait retraining interventions
• Select the appropriate treatment tool based on the stage of injury (protection vs. adaptation)

Jean-Francois Esculier completed his bachelor of physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa, Canada, before undertaking graduate studies (Masters and PhD) at Laval University, Canada. Over the past few years, he has conducted studies on patellofemoral pain in runners (treatment approaches, biomechanics, footwear), and shows particular interest for clinical research. Jean-Francois is also an active clinician and currently practices as a physiotherapist at the Allan McGavin Sports Medicine Clinic in Vancouver, Canada. He is currently a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia. Given his interest for knowledge translation, Jean-Francois enjoys teaching continuing education courses pertaining to the prevention and treatment of running injuries through The Running Clinic. He has taught the course ‘New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries’ in North America, Europe and in Australia and New Zealand.
