Lower Leg Overuse Injuries and Syndromes in Athletes – 4 Hours

$25.00

Description

Many injuries are caused by overuse rather than accidents. The most common diagnoses are patellofemoral pain syndrome, tibial stress syndrome (shin splints), Achilles tendinopathy, iliotibial band friction syndrome (runner’s knee), plantar fasciitis, and stress fractures of the metatarsals and tibia. This course is designed to help recognize and rehabilitate overuse injuries commonly experienced by runners of all ages, genders, and levels of running experience.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to learn: 

  • Distinguish between extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors for lower leg overuse injuries and syndromes.
  • Understand the functional and non-functional biomechanics of the foot during running in athletes.
  • Distinguish between biomechanical issues associated with overpronation and underpronation.
  • Describe the role of overpronation and underpronation in lower leg overuse injuries.
  • List considerations pertaining to examining, choosing, and fitting running footwear.
  • Discuss common overuse injuries and syndromes, their risk factors, causes, clinical presentation, treatment/management, physical therapy management options, and patient education.
