About the course

In this course, Christian will give you the skills and knowledge to diagnose and manage injured runners. The course explores lower limb biomechanics, provides an overview of how biomechanics can link to injury, and how to identify and address them through running retraining and exercise 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 100 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

  • Appreciate and use biomechanical principles including load management when treating the injured runner
  • Develop or improve you knowledge and confidence to complete a thorough running assessment
  • Know when and how to implement running retraining, including strategies beyond step rate and strike pattern
  • Understand exercise prescription principles and how to apply them to rehabilitation of injured runners
  • Improve your knowledge and capacity to educate runners about load management, technique, and exercise
  • Help runners at your clinic run pain-free, and improve their performance

Christian Barton

Hi, I’m Dr Christian Barton. I am an expert in the management of difficult to treat, long term injuries. I have a particular interest in the knee (including osteoarthritis, patellofemoral pain and running related injuries. My main focus is providing individual exercise solutions and holistic patient education for people with persistent pain. For my injured runners I use running retraining (world leader in this treatment), which is often a key missing element to rehabilitation.

Research is one of my passions, and I am a Post-Doctoral researcher at the University of Melbourne and La Trobe University, primary focussed on improving knee pain and injury management. This role includes leading GLA:D Australia, which aims to improve access to appropriate exercise and education to all Australians with osteoarthritis; and TREK, a project aimed at improving access to knowledge of evidence based treatments. I am passionate about bring my research knowledge and extensive clinical experience together to treat patients of all ages and physical activity levels to get them back to being able to do the things they love.
