I recently returned for a Continuing Education Course on biomechanics of gait, running and rehabilitation titled: Running Rehabilitation and after this weekend my total hours of continuing education on gait stands at 120!!

  • 1996 Locomotor Biomechanics (8 hrs)
  • 1997 Orthotic Reaction (22 hrs)
  • 1998 Grinders & Glue (16 hrs)
  • 1998 Landing on Your Feet (8 hrs)
  • 1998 Current Concepts in Biomechanics (22 hrs)
  • 2000 When the Foot Hits the Ground (Lv2) (15 hrs)
  • 2001 The Running Course (15 hrs)
  • 2015 Running Rehabilitation (14 hrs)

I certainly learned a couple things from my most recent course.  First, the science of running has certainly evolved in the last 14 years but the course also validated that all the work I invested to become a Subject Matter Expert in Biomechanics has certainly paid off.  To summarize that work I thought I’d list my teaching experience…
  • 1999-2000 I re-wrote 32 hours of gait and biomechanics for the Army-Baylor Physical Therapy Program.
  • 1999 University of Texas Health Science Center, Normal Gait (4 hours)
  • 1999 Balboa Naval Medical Center (Tricare Region IX), Lower Extremity Treatment Options (15 hours)
  • 2000 Etiology of Foot Pain, Health Care Providers in Bosnia (8 hours)
  • 2000  Army Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency, Normal Gait and Malalignments (15 hours).
  • 2002 Army Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency, Normal Gait and Malalignments (15 hours).
  • 2002 Colorado Springs Air force and Army Cont. Ed.  Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Prescription (15 hours)
  • 2003 Hawaii APTA, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Fabrication (15 hrs)
  • 2003 Army Sports Medicine Physical Therapy Residency, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Prescriptions (15 hours).
  • 2005 Hawaii APTA, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Fabrication (15 hrs)
  • 2007 Operation Iraqi Freedom Deployment Cont Ed. Foot Pain Management in a Deployed Setting. (8 hours).
  • 2009 Kentucky APTA, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Fabrication (15 hours).
  • 2010 Texas APTA, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Fabrication (15 hours).
  • 2011 Washington APTA, Normal Gait, Malalignments and Orthotic Fabrication (15 hours).
That is a total of just over 200 hours of teaching to hundreds Physical Therapy students, graduates and and post graduate specialists.  I don’t proclaim this accomplishment to brag about what I’ve done, but to give God glory for the opportunities He’s afforded me.  I’m also realizing I haven’t taught a course in 4 years…I need to get off my butt and put on another conference!! 🙂
