A Multifactorial Approach for the Assessment of Running-Related Injuries
The incidence of running-related injuries (RRI) over a one-year period has been shown to be fairly high, ranging from 32% to 64% among short-, middle- and long-distance runners. There are a number of factors to consider when analyzing injury risk in sport. Meeuwisse et al. created an injury aetiology model that considers the intrinsic and extrinsic factors associated with sport related injury. Intrinsic factors can include age, sex, fitness, sport specific biomechanics, psychological factors, nutritional status, etc. Extrinsic factors can include training equipment, training load, environmental factors, etc. This webinar will present an evidence-based, multifactorial approach to examining the risk of developing a RRI.

Michael is a full-time Lecturer in Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. His doctoral studies focused on programming interval training to optimize endurance sport performance. His post-doctoral work examines the intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors associated running-related musculoskeletal conditions. Michael is also a practicing physiotherapist. A significant portion of his practice has involved the assessment and treatment of individuals from a variety of sports, with a strong focus on swimming, cycling and running. Michael has an extensive background in exercise and sport science in addition to his experience in rehabilitation. He is a clinical exercise physiologist and a certified triathlon coach. He has prepared athletes for national and international level competition by developing and implementing individualized endurance training programs.
