The Pose Method: A Standardized Approach to Running & Injury Prevention

POSE METHOD® SPECIALIST CERTIFICATION COURSE
Live Seminar: 16 Contact Hours

This 2-day course is designed for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to learn how to use video analysis and running technique assessment tools to analyze running gait, movement patterns and identify deviations from the standard established by the Pose Method framework.

Prevention of running related injuries, significant reduction in eccentric knee loading, and the necessity of improvement of running technique as well as its connection to a successful course of treatment will be discussed.

Participants will also learn how to use specific corrective technique drills and strength exercises to develop a clear and reliable course of action to improve pain and disability associated with the chronic exertional compartment syndrome. Related scientific research and clinical studies will be presented.

“The course was one of the best I’ve taken. Dr. Romanov is a genius and I think his teaching is so relevant to our profession. I think I can speak for everyone when I say we all got a lot out of the class.”

– Jessica DePalma, DPT,
