Location: Drexel University, Geary B Auditorium, Center City Campus | 245 N 15th St, Philadelphia, PA 19102
Title: “Management of Running Injuries: Putting Evidence into Clinical Practice”
Speaker: Robert Maschi, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS. Associate Clinical Professor. Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences.
Dr. Maschi is a board-certified specialist in Orthopedics by the American Physical Therapy Association. He teaches the musculoskeletal and orthopedic curricula in the professional DPT program and contributes to clinical practice in the Drexel Athletic Center Physical Therapy Practice. Dr. Maschi’s clinical and research interests focus on the assessment of running biomechanics and their relationship to overuse injury as well as the role of the pelvic girdle and core function in musculoskeletal injury.
1. Understand the significance and clinical utility of running biomechanics evidence
2. Identify barriers to utilizing biomechanical evidence in practice and potential solutions. 
3. Improve clinical decision-making paradigms and strategies to provide successful treatment
    outcomes in runners
4. Consider and implement the three pillars of evidence-based practice appropriately when
    working with patients with running-related injuries.
Course Description:
This course will review the foundational research on running biomechanics, emphasizing the latest research and barriers to knowledge translation from research to clinical practice. Evidence based practice and clinical decision making in treating runners will be highlighted through practical case examples (e.g., patellofemoral pain syndrome, Achilles tendinopathy, iliotibial band syndrome, chronic exertional compartment syndrome and tibial stress fractures). Throughout these examples the application of the three pillars of evidence-based practice to managing these injuries will be highlighted through case descriptions and clinical treatment strategies.
Contact hours: .5 evaluative and .5 general contact hours
