The first course in this series focuses on a biopsychosocial understanding of the running athlete. Key categories are targeted by using a complete running evaluation template. The goal is to learn the practical skills of identifying common running injury patterns while incorporating the uniqueness of every patient's problem and their behavior. The focus will be on a narrative-based motivational interviewing method.

1. The 12 Most Common Running Injuries

This chapter will cover the top 12 evidence-based running injury patterns, including their epidemiologies and presentations. These injuries will be used as practical examples of how the subjective exam can be streamlined to improve the movement analysis and physical exam.

2. The Patients’ Injury and Training Narrative

The opening injury narrative is a way that every patient begins to tell their story. Helping the athlete summarize and explore timelines of pain, trauma, and training, as well as functional “can do and can’t do” lists, helps generate more meaningful goals and timelines.

3. Horses or Zebras—Are We Safe Here?

Are you dealing with common issues or rare situations—horses versus zebras? This chapter will cover quick screens used for identifying red flags such as centralized pain or general immune or endocrine systems involvement.

4. Pain and the Running Athlete

Pain can impact the running athlete in more ways than expected. This chapter provides an updated knowledge of pain science for running injuries, covering descriptors, nature of pain, and irritability. Discussion is also provided surrounding the running patients’ presentations of avoidance, hypervigilance, beliefs, and behaviors.

5. Summarize the Subjective & Preparation for the Physical/Objective Exam

Effectively summarizing and creating the first narrative in the clinician’s running exam will be beneficial for the clinician with planning the objective exam. This chapter will cover strategies for compiling narratives and how the narrative will best guide the objective exam.
