By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This course is a lab intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system of management for the foot and ankle. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of the anatomical and biomechanical presentation of an efficient foot and ankle which provides for a dynamically stable and mobile base of support. Each participant will explore the biomechanical and functional impact of the foot and ankle on the entire kinetic chain and examine the role of the foot and ankle as an essential component of optimal mobility, alignment, and motor control of the human system. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical impairments of the foot and ankle. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will develop advanced skills of evaluation, differentiation of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions, and implementation of an appropriate plan of care and utilization of Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. The course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyze the biomechanical difference between a normal and an efficient foot and ankle in supervised lab practice sessions and instructor guided discussions. Participants will be able to: • verbalize the difference between a “normal” and an “efficient” foot and ankle based on the presented “challenge of normal”. • identify the 6 key structural components of a “compensated supinated” foot. • identify 13 functional characteristics of an efficient vs. inefficient foot. • evaluate their lab partner’s foot and ankle using 14 function based evaluations. • develop the skill to set 10 structural and functional goals for treating the foot and ankle. • perform the appropriate manual skills to evaluate the structures and function of the foot and ankle. • perform effective treatments for the restoration of mobility and function of the foot and ankle. • synthesize the information gained through objective and subjective evaluations to create an appropriate prognosis for a lab partner. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
