Last January I attended a 3 day course called New Trends in the Prevention and Treatment of Running Injuries. The course, led by physiotherapist Blaise Dubois from Quebec City, was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend attending should you have the chance. I recently received an email from my friend Kyle Roberts who owns the Revolution Natural Running Store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and he informed me that he is going to be hosting Blaise for another 3-day course in February. He asked if I’d be willing to post the details and spread the word, and I’m happy to oblige. Below is the information on the course that Kyle provided to me:

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 began in 2011. The inaugural US course held on the East Coast in January 2011 has already brought large attention to improved prevention and treatment of injury. Internationally, the course has changed the practice of hundreds of health professionals. Built from more than a thousand scientific articles and systematic reviews, it questions many current practices in the treatment of both runners and non-runners alike. With high quality audio-visual material, this course will integrate the theory and practice of a number of advanced concepts on running.
Injury etiology and theory
Diagnosis and treatment of injury
Planning of training sessions
Evidence based stretching and strength training
Biomechanical gait analyses
Analysis of the running shoe
Efficient running form
Optional group runs with experts in the field
The three-day course will enable you to efficiently treat your patients whether they are runners or active in other sports. You will leave with clinical tools such as a DVD (running mechanics, demo exercises, warm-up sequence…), a CD with a PDF document (evaluation sheets, exercise programs, tips, running programs, …) and a portfolio that includes all the academic content of the course.
The course is instructed by an internationally known teacher and leader in Running Medicine:
Blaise Dubois is a physiotherapist who teaches at the Faculty of Medicine at Laval University. Blaise has developed the Running Clinic Canada and has taught over 50 conferences around the world. His involvement with the Canadian athletics team has led him to travel around the world enriching his knowledge and adapting his clinical approach. There is no one who knows the research better than Blaise, he can cite specific studies by name, date, and researcher.
Special Note: We’ve invited Bryan Heiderscheit, PT PhD of the University of Wisconsin to join us and share some of his research!
