This course lays a foundation that is critical for the acute and long term success in caring for the endurance athlete. First the course will take a broad look at the stresses athletes impose on themselves during training, and discuss how this load impacts the care clinicians provide. Secondly, we’ll narrow our scope to assess how specific tissues within the body adapt and interact to stresses. At the end of this course, the clinician should have a working knowledge of the extrinsic and intrinsic factors affecting successful rehab, injury prevention, and performance planning with this challenging population. Its critical that clinicians integrate themselves as the expert resource on musculoskeletal development and can interact and educate the athletes and coaches who make up our comprehensive performance network.
Jay Dicharry built his international reputation as an expert in biomechanical analysis as Director of the SPEED Clinic at the University of Virginia. Through this innovative venture, Jay was able to blend the fields of clinical practice and engineering to better understand and eliminate the cause of overuse injuries in endurance athletes. His unique approach…
Understand the rationale for tissue dysfunction that contributes to injury and performance. Understand the compounding effects of deficient stabilization and compensatory overuse patterns that individuals build into their activity. Develop a working hypothesis to best target the weak link. Progress clinical thought process from the exam room to functional sport training.
Be able to apply the load-deformation curve as it relates to stress, strain, and tissue remodeling. Understand the unique role of the structural alignment of collagen. Have a working understanding of the impact of training on tissue specificity, highlighting the capacity of each respective tissue within the body to adapt.
Discuss common questions regarding the clinician's role in endurance sports performance.
