Running injuries occur due to a number of intrinsic and extrinsic factors and developing a comprehensive plan of care to rehabilitate a running injury can be a complicated process. A detailed assessment of the runner will help to identify the source of symptoms as well as any contributing factors involved. This will allow the therapist to develop an individualised plan of care that addresses the runners unique needs.


This course introduces you to the basics on how to develop a comprehensive plan of care for runners with injuries. It will briefly look at understanding training and injury history, identifying mobility and motor control deficits in relation to running form and then look at how to create a comprehensive plan of care.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz
