Physiotherapy Course Summary:
Foot/Ankle Bio-Mechanics and Gait Analysis
Date: Feb 26th 2017 9am-4:30pm
Tutor: Martin Bell
All Bookings www.southwestphysio.co.uk
This day course is designed for physiotherapists and other professionals who want to improve their ability to assess and treat foot biomechanics, understand the role of gait analysis and the use of orthotic prescription.
We will also look at examining the recent changes in the orthotic assessment and treatment of the lower-limb.
Particular emphasis will be paid to the bio-mechanical impact of joint instability and the effect of poor muscular control. Several case studies will be presented to aid and encourage open discussion.
Appraise the various key foot profiles responsible for a wide range of postural abnormalities and understand how each foot pathology creates an easily recognisable bio-mechanical deficit.
Participate in the practical workshops, assessing the gait and posture of your colleagues, proposing treatment alternatives to restore optimal bio-mechanical gait and restore the dynamic control of the kinetic chain.
Understand the benefit of accurate orthotic prescription and the high importance of multi-disciplinary team-working to enable the optimal rehabilitation of your patient.
Course notes, attendance certificate and CPD reflection paperwork will all be included on the day.
Light refreshments on the day, lunch not included keeping the course cost down for you.
