Session notes: Etiology Of Running Injuries - an invited speaker presentation at the 2013 TPTA Annual Conference.
Course description: Participation in running as a fitness activity has increased dramatically over the past decade. Unfortunately, there is also a significant rate of injury, with greater than 60% of runners sustaining an injury within a given year. A sound understanding of the etiology of running injuries is critical not only for optimal injury recovery but also for effective injury prevention strategies. This session will address the scientific evidence related to the etiology of running injuries and will propose a new approach to the care of running injuries.
