Course Objectives:

DNS Running Athlete – Sports Specific course

    • Postural-locomotion function from a developmental perspective
    • Developmental kinesiology aspects for ideal stereotype of running and other sports performance
    • Biomechanics of gait and the running cycle
    • Basic core stabilization as a prerequisite for locomotion patterns
    • The role of the diaphragm during aerobic exercise; dual postural-respiratory diaphragmatic function
    • Correction and training of the proper breathing stereotype
    • The extremities functional differentiation for running – stepping forward and supporting function for the contralateral pattern of running
    • DNS exercise positions to train core stabilization as a prerequisite of the ideal running stereotype
    • Biomechanical and developmental kinesiology principles for foot centration & foot orthotics and selection of optimal shoes for different type of running
    • The most frequent types of musculoskeletal dysfunction resulting from non optimal running stereotype and poor methodology of training: plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, knee pain, hip pain, low back pain
