Map and Directions


There are more endurance athletes, including runners, cyclists and swimmers in the U.S., than in any other recreational sport. The injuries they face often present unique challenges. At the conclusion of this symposium dedicated exclusively to taking care of the endurance athlete, participants should be able to:

  • Identify conditions of the lumbar and cervical spine and be able to incorporate treatment options for these conditions.
  • Recognize external compartment syndrome from the other sources of leg pain in the endurance athlete and describe treatment options for this condition.
  • Identify lower extremity nerve injuries and be able to incorporate treatment of these conditions into their practice.
  • Describe how to handle a bike accident, including treatment of any wounds.
  • Recognize exercise-induced bronchospasm, ventricular capture beat, overtraining, heat illness, dehydration, hyponatremia, anemia, and low ferritin in the endurance athlete and describe how these conditions should be handled/treated.
  • Describe the process for performing a swimming analysis and bike fitting.
  • Recognize when an athlete would benefit from psychological counseling to help them prepare for their return to sport after an injury.
  • Describe common CrossFit injuries and be able to incorporate treatment options for these injuries.
  • Incorporate new manual techniques into treatment of endurance athletes.
  • Describe different yoga poses that can assist with the treatment of the endurance athlete.
