Dynamic Stabilisation of the Foot & Ankle

AUD $125.00

The foot and ankle are involved in shock absorption, propulsion, balance mechanisms, and provide essential information to the brain for motor planning of the whole kinetic chain. This course explores the intricate stability mechanisms of the foot and ankle including the important role of foot intrinsics.

Duration: approx. 2 – 2-2.5 Hrs

Description

Synopsis

The foot and ankle are involved in shock absorption, propulsion, balance mechanisms, and provide essential information to the brain for motor planning of the whole kinetic chain. Dysfunction of the foot & ankle have been linked with both local and more proximal pain and injury. This course will explore in detail the intricate stability mechanisms of the foot and ankle. Duration: approx. 2-2.5 Hrs

Aims

This course aims to

Enhance clinical reasoning, and skills for development of therapeutic exercise for the foot and ankle.

Challenge participants to re-examine their own clinical practice.

Stimulate new thought & provide direction for those who may be interested in contributing to the research in this field.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:

Describe the key elements required for optimal foot & ankle stability.

Define functional roles of the musculature surrounding the foot and ankle.

Design a targeted exercise programme for the foot and ankle considering both intrinsic and extrinsic dynamic stability mechanisms.
