Running is a very popular sport globally. Running is also a recognised and accessible choice for health, sports and leisure activity. However, not all running is the same. Different types of running have different characteristics and specific aspects that should be considered during any prehabilitation and rehabilitation related assessment and management. In this programme, Dawn Nunes will cover aspects such as understanding your runner, subjective assessment, comprehensive running analysis, biomechanical analysis and testing, equipment, training, recovery, running injuries and rehabilitation as it relates to different types of running and running shoe recommendations.
The aim of this programme of courses is to give you a comprehensive understanding of different types of running athletes, as well as their assessment and management.
