The most important aspect of any physiotherapy intervention is the assessment. A detailed subjective assessment is key to identifying internal and external factors that could be impacting runners and their recovery from injury. Dawn Nunes, a runner and a physiotherapist, designed this course to help you understand how to subjectively assess your runners by asking tailored questions about their running.
This course aims to introduce the subjective assessment of runners and explore its important role in running assessments.
This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
