Conference Brochure

Comprehensive Treatment of the Foot & Ankle is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Feb 08 - 09, 2020 at Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States of America. 

This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course.

Course Description:
This course takes a significantly different approach to treatment of the foot and ankle. It focuses on how to restore normal foot mechanics and take stress off of the soft tissues in the foot through manual techniques, taping and orthotic therapy. It shows you common foot dysfunctions that lead to common foot diagnoses. The manual therapy techniques covered include joint mobilizations and myofascial release / soft tissue mobilizations. You will make a pair of temporary orthotics in the class, utilizing a structural and functional approach, which can be easily replicated on Monday morning.

As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours. This course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.

Topics Covered:
• Introduction to a comprehensive approach to manual treatment of the foot & ankle
• Overview of anatomy of the foot & ankle complex and its effect on mobilizations, MFR, etc
• Introduction and review of the concepts of functional joint mobilization, MFR, foot taping, balance re-education and orthotic therapy
• Mobilization: distal tib-fib, talocrural, subtalar, cuboid, navicular, misc tarsals
• MFR: foot, ankle and lower extremity release techniques, scar releases
• Taping: for the arch, ankle, navicular sling, peroneus longus, hallux valgus, calcaneal, fat pad
• Orthotic therapy with temporary orthotics
• Balance re-education of the foot & ankle complex
• Application to specific clinical situations

Course Objectives:
At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:
• Demonstrate the ability to select the correct mobilization technique, myofascial technique, and correct taping, balance re-education or orthotic technique based on a patient's clinical presentation.
• Demonstrate the correct hand technique, the correct grading of joint mobilization, and describe the specific physiologic effects of joint mobilization.
