Brian Hoke's Advanced Level Biomechanics course of the Foot and Ankle is organized by Motivations Inc. and will be held from Aug 15 - 16, 2020 at OrthoNeuro, New Albany, Ohio, United States of America. Audience: Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Prosthetists, Orthotists, Exercise Physiologists, and Athletic Trainers CEU Credits: 16 hours or 0.16 or 16 CEUs Course Summary: This two-day seminar is designed to provide an expanded approach to clinical problem solving by understanding lower extremity biomechanics and applying these principles to improve structural alignment and function. The course content will build upon basic principles to give the clinician new tools and perspectives on management of common clinical problems. The course will cover running biomechanics and injuries, manual therapy, biomechanical examination, video analysis, shoe prescription, conservative and post-operative treatment protocols, and foot orthotics. The lecture content will be reinforced by demonstration and “hands on” lab sessions throughout the course. Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to: • List major triplane component motions at the major articulations of the foot and ankle. • Perform biomechanically consistent manual therapy techniques to improve joint motion. • Describe normal running biomechanics including review of barefoot running and minimalist shoes. • Recognize common injuries to running athletes and construct logical treatment strategies. • Perform advanced clinical and functional assessment of lower extremity structure. • Perform clinical video analysis using slow motion and stop frame techniques for walking and running. • Recommend appropriate functional footwear for patient based on their lower extremity biomechanics. • Prescribe, fabricate and modify functional foot orthoses to address patterns of abnormal compensation. • Recognize appropriate treatment strategies for common lower extremity overuse syndrome. • Apply evidence based post-operative protocols for common fractures and surgeries of the foot and ankle region.
