Running is a hierarchical skill relative to most activities of daily living. It is therefore important to conduct a running analysis at some point in working with runners, especially if they are sidelined from training secondary to pain and/or pathology. This guide is designed to provide clinicians and health professionals with a simple and practical framework to approach conducting a TM running analysis while learning how to interpret and apply the results in real time. By enhancing one’s understanding of running and gait retraining, loads can be shifted away from sensitized or pathologic tissue while demonstrating to patients that their running related pain is malleable, and can be lessened by manipulating specific aspects of their gait. Having runners experience a rapid improvement in their symptoms through simple gait retraining has the potential to enhance a runner’s expectations and confidence with treatment, which ultimately lends to a better outcome.
If there is one thing that runners should do outside of running, it's strength train. This guide lays out the primary exercises and drills that we routinely prescribe to runners across the injury to performance spectrum. Regardless of whether you are rebounding from an injury, dealing with niggles that constantly interfere with your training, or looking to reach a performance milestone, the information in this guide will be of interest to you. With over 75 high definition videos coupled with 15 chapters and three sample programs, this is a must have.Wishing you HAPPY, HEALTHY, & STRONG training!
We believe in the fundamentals. This book is filled with a ton of easily digestible information geared towards consistent & healthy training in the way of exercises, footwear considerations, cadence, and decision making related to pain.
This document provides practitioners, who work with runners, with a group of physical performance tests (PPTs) or functional assessments that can be used for the sake of improved decision making in confidently returning a runner back to training. The primary goal of this battery of tests is to challenge a runner through specific regions, tissues, and movements that mimic the performance demands of running. The ability to successfully complete these tests should ultimately give both the practitioner and runner greater confidence in the runner’s ability to withstand the performance demands of distance running. Ultimately, our goal is to help you answer every runner's most pressing question, "When can I run?"
