Treating and Training the Female Runner - in Saskatoon, SK

Changes to the course due to Covid-19

It will be a live on-line course - zoom format webinar. We have lowered the cost as well to $550+gst.

The female runner presents practitioners with unique challenges. Women are 2x more likely to sustain a running injury than men; experience a higher rate of incontinence than age-matched women in general population; and need to navigate the changes brought by pregnancy and postpartum to continue to participate in their sport of choice. It is critical that both male and female orthopedic, sports medicine, and pelvic health professionals recognize and have skills to address the inter-relationship of muskuloskeletal, performance and pelvic/abdominal health needs of female runners in their care. These issues are intertwined within the brains and bodies os athletic females, we can no longer separate them in our clinical and fitness programming.
