This is a special webinar!

 

Whether you are a seasoned runner, or want to start enjoying all the benefits of running, there is one very important thing you should know: recreational running is NOT bad for your joints!
 
A growing body of research suggests that:
  • your joints are built to tolerate the impact of running;
  • running does not degrade or injure cartilage in the knee, ankle or foot; and
  • you can safely practice recreational running simply by listening to your body.
  
This special, interactive webinar will present the current state of research on running and joint health, including the results of a recent systematic review published in the prestigious journal Sports Medicine.
 
Along with The Running Clinic's team, the authors of that new literature review will discuss its results, conclusions and practical implications for runners and for health professionals:
  • Michaela C. M. Khan, PhD student in the Motion Analysis and Biofeedback lab / Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia;
  • James O’Donovan, Sports medicine physician at Sport Ireland Institute, National Orthopaedic Hospital in Dublin, Ireland / Sport Surgery Clinic, Dublin;
  • Jesse M. Charlton, PhD candidate in the Motion Analysis and Biofeedback lab / Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia;
  • Michael A. Hunt, Director of the Motion Analysis and Biofeedback lab and Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia; and
  • The Running Clinic's R&D leader, Jean-Francois Esculier, also from the Motion Analysis and Biofeedback lab / Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia.
