New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries

Following the enormous success of the course entitled "New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries" in North America and in Europe, an international tour begins in 2011. Already presented on many different occasions, the course has changed the practice of hundreds of health professionals. Built from more than a thousand scientific articles and 8 unpublished systematic reviews, it questions many current unjustified practices in the treatment of both runners and non-runners alike.

Accompanied by high quality audio-visual material, this course can help you integrate, with a superior mix of theory and practice, a number of advanced concepts on running. From diagnosis to treatment, from the planning of training sessions to biomechanical analyses and even an analysis of the running shoe, the two-day course is structured to enable you to efficiently treat all your patients whether they are runners, occasional joggers or active in other sports. You will leave with clinical tools such as USB key with a PDF document (evaluation sheets, exercise programs, tips, running programs, …) and a paper document that includes all the academic content of the course.

The high-tech presentation and materials are supported by experienced, entertaining and dynamic presenters who simplify complex theoretical concepts and make them applicable to your everyday practice. Blaise Dubois and Jean-Francois Esculier are physiotherapists teaching at Laval University's Faculty of Médicine, routinely speaking at numerous conferences and providing continuing education courses around the world.

Gifts, snacks, local networking, and monthly updated literature are some of the many extras you will receive by attending the 18-hour high quality training course. Register now!
