Injury Prevention for Runners: Knee and Hip Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
The hips are one of the most important stabilisers when it comes to running form. The muscles around the hips help extend the leg which translates to forward motion and they are vital at stabilising the pelvis to ensure efficient running form. Having mobile and stable hips also means the knee joint isn't excessively overloaded when absorbing impact forces meaning a reduction in the risk of knee pain. The hips also have an implication in other inuries such as back pain and foot and ankle pain.
In this workshop we will look at assessing range of motion (ROM) and stability of your knees and hips before going through practical strategies to enhance movement and thus performance. The workshop will suit all abilities of runner, no matter what distance you cover. Everyone will benefit from the information contained within.
As part of your attendance you will receive an electronic copy of the resources used within the workshop including video links to all exercises and assessments covered.
