Female participation in running has increased in recent years. For women with young children, it is convenient, cost effective, and flexible.

A recent study by Moore et al (2021) reported 84% of women experience musculoskeletal pain on return to running and 29% experience urinary incontinence.

Are we preparing our women adequately for return to running post birth?

✅The pelvic floor and diaphragm connection.
✅Thoracic mobility.
✅Difference between male and female runners.
✅MSK changes to the lower limb muscles and biomechanics after pregnancy.
✅Return to running load and strength tests.
✅Strategies for reducing load impact.
✅Rehab strategies to ensure our women are ready for return to running.


This webinar is delivered across Zoom.
