Run Strong Core Program™ (Run Strong Core Program)

The Run Strong Core Program is a 14-week core-strengthening program that encompasses three phases, stability, loading and dynamics, as well as a pre and post assessment. The program is designed to address the functional demands of running based on the running gait cycle to improve balance, flexibility and core strength. Additionally, each phase of the program is based on the concept of progressive periodization in order to prevent injury and maximize running efficiency and power.

  • learn corrective orthotic and exercises to address biomechanical faults 

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. List 5 common biomechanical faults that cause injury and somatic dysfunction
  2. Be able to describe how at least three biomechanical faults cause injury and somatic dysfunction
  3. Be able to perform a basic video analysis of gait with a hand-held video device
  4. Identify a minimum of three biomechanical faults on video analysis of a patient
  5. Be able to articulate how a gait analysis can be integrated into an overall treatment plan for treatment of somatic dysfunction
