KINETICS AND KINEMATICS IN RUNNING: HOW DO THEY AFFECT INJURY PREVENTION AND PERFORMANCE?

WORKSHOP

Wednesday 2/10

Timeline: 11.00-13.00 break 14.00-16.00

01

This workshop aims to provide the tools to understand how biomechanical analysis can be used not only to optimize running performance but also to help athletes in the treatment of injuries. To this end, the use of the tools available for the kinematic and kinetic analysis of running will be described: from those available to a standard movement analysis laboratory such as a system of cameras and force plates, to the most recent wearable tools such as inertial sensors and pressure pads for field investigations. Subsequently, examples of injuries and their treatment will be provided to return to pre-injury/physiological running in order to understand the significant biomechanical variables that can be modified. The course makes use of practical acquisitions to allow participants to come into greater contact with this type of intervention on runners. In particular, different running techniques will be shown and the influence of footwear will be investigated.

Davide Vallesio

Davide Vallesio graduated in physiotherapy in Novara in 2014 and obtained a Master's degree in Manual Therapy from the University of Genoa in 2016. He has always worked as a freelancer and in 2018 he opened his physiotherapy studio, FisioSprint. Since 2019 he has been scientific director and teacher for the Italian courses of La Clinica Del Running, and since 2021 he has been a contract professor for the La Sapienza University of Rome for the Master in Musculoskeletal and Rheumatological Physiotherapy where he is the teacher responsible for the knee module and also carries out research activity. Always a practitioner and enthusiast of many sports, in recent years he has specialized in the management and prevention of runners' injuries.
