About The¬†Course ūüĖ•

During this webinar we will examine returning to running after injury. Topics will include how to evaluate an athlete's readiness to start running, evidence based return to run programs and interventions to improve running gait. Our panel of interdisciplinary running experts will examine and discuss running case studies. The panelists, which include academic and clinical experts from both physician and physical therapy backgrounds, will provide their own unique perspectives on how to return each athlete to running.
During the webinar we will be exploring:

How to construct a return to run program 


Surgeon, physician and physical therapist panel discussion


How to assess a patient's readiness to return to running


Interventions to improve running gait

From there he received his MD from Columbia University before moving to San Francisco to complete his orthopedic residency. Following residency, he completed a fellowship in Sports Shoulder and Elbow at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte. While there he was assistant team physician to the Carolina Panthers and the Charlotte Knights.

He continues to work with high school and college athletes to develop sport-specific injury prevention protocols.His surgical specialties include minimally invasive arthroscopic knee, shoulder, and hip surgery. Additionally, he focuses on complex knee and shoulder ligament reconstructions, shoulder replacements, and has a particular interest in cartilage restoration and transplantation procedures for the knee.

Drew Lansdown, MD

Dr. Drew Lansdown is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and surgeries of the knee, shoulder and elbow. He treats a wide range of conditions, including knee ligament injuries, meniscus and other cartilage injuries, rotator cuff tears, shoulder instability, shoulder arthritis, and shoulder and elbow injuries related to throwing.
