POSE METHOD® SPECIALIST CERTIFICATION COURSE

THE POSE METHOD: A STANDARDIZED APPROACH TO RUNNING AND INJURY PREVENTION

LIVE SEMINAR: 16 CONTACT HOURS

This 2-day course is approved for 16 contact hours (check your state under the CEU tab above) and is designed for Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants to learn how to use video analysis, running technique assessment tools, specific corrective technique drills and strength exercises to develop a clear and reliable course of action:

  1. to reduce and eliminate pain and disability associated with the chronic exertional compartment syndrome
  2. to successfully return to running after limb loss
  3. to significantly reduce knee loading when running
  4. to recover faster & better after a marathon or an ultra-marathon

Relevant scientific research and clinical studies will be presented.

The Pose Method has the potential to be used as a standard by which running performances can be evaluated, coached and enhanced. In twenty-five years of working with running athletes, I have yet to find a more meaningful resource.

About one year ago, I could not run fifty yards without extreme IT Band Syndrome pain. Today, I am the USA Paratriathlon National Champion.
