Tutor: Dr Christian Barton, PhD, BPhysio (Hon)

In this course, Christian will give you the skills and knowledge to diagnose and manage biomechanical deficits in injured runners. The course explores ideal lower limb biomechanics, provides an overview of how common biomechanical faults link to injury, and how to identify and address them in the clinic. The evidence behind and practical application of running retraining, exercise, footwear and other adjunctive interventions are explored in relation to both injury and performance.

This course is delivered by Dr Christian Barton, who has a highly respected international research profile, with more than 40 peer reviewed publications. He teaches courses in Australia, the UK and Scandinavia. Clinically, Christian specialises in the management of persistent and challenging knee and running related injuries, working with a range of elite athletes and in conjunction with many of Melbourne’s leading orthopaedic specialists. This vital clinical insight ensure you will take away immediately clinically applicable skills.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explore important principles to consider during assessment and rehabilitation of biomechanical and running injuries
  •  Understand ideal and potential biomechanical faults and their relationship with running injury
  • Develop clinical skills to assess potential structural and functional biomechanical factors which may be linked to running injuries and performance
  • Develop skills and clinical reasoning processes to apply running retraining
  • Apply exercise and resistance training to assist in running injury management and performance
  • Understand the implications of footwear modification to the management running injuries and performance

This high practical course will give you the skills and knowledge to diagnose and manage biomechanical deficits associated with lower limb injuries. The course explores ideal lower limb biomechanics, provide an overview of how common biomechanical faults link to injury, and how to identify and address them in a clinical setting. The evidence behind, and practical application of interventions including prefabricated foot orthoses prescription, taping, movement pattern retraining, exercise rehabilitation, and adjunctive manual therapy for common lower limb injuries are explored.

The course is delivered by Dr Christian Barton and Dr Peter Malliaras, who have completed PhDs related to musculosketal injury management. Between them they have presented at countless national and international conferences, and authored more than 60 peer reviewed papers and book Chapters on injury, biomechanics and rehabilitation; including the ‘Clinical aspects of biomechanics and sporting injuries’ Chapter in the most recent addition of Brukner and Khan’s ‘Clinical Sports Medicine.’ Both Christian and Peter continue to work clinically, ensuring their wealth of knowledge is delivered to you with a focus on clinical application, meaning you leave the course with new long lasting skills, whether you are a new graduate or experienced clinician. The course will be a mixture of lectures, discussions and practical workshops. Places are limited to 30 people.
