Putting Your Best Foot Forward
ABOUT THIS COURSE
This 2-day lab-based 16-hour continuing education course is designed to teach foot and ankle biomechanics and discuss the effects they have on the lower extremities.
The con-ed course will blend lecture with extensive hands-on lab time and a low participant-to-instructor ratio to best master the skills that are presented. You will learn how to identify and treat foot pathologies and develop an expert understanding of how altering foot mechanics can create positive effects up the lower extremity chain.
The research-based treatment principles will include shoe recommendation, taping, exercise, and over-the-counter or custom orthotic prescription. You will learn practical skills for immediate application in your practice.
To help you be best prepared for the course, a 60-minute in-depth anatomy and joint axes presentation is provided. Participants are required to view the presentation and complete a comprehension quiz prior to attending. Access information will be provided 30 days prior to your course date.
