Chris Bramah speaks passionately about his interest and knowledge with runners and shows how to practically address running gait retraining. He also mentions how it is not only the gait retraining we must look out for, but a buy-in from the patient as well as all the other multifactorial aspects.
This course broadened my knowledge about exercise prescription and how educating the patient in the correct way can make a significant difference in treatment.
