A Complete Clinician’s Approach to Musculoskeletal Management of the Foot and Ankle

Course Description

24 Education Hours:  8 Hours – Online Self Study + 16 Hours – Online Instructor-led Training

The 8 hours of online lectures encompass an in-depth look at pathoanatomy, basic and specific clinical examination of the ankle and foot complex, clinical interpretation and differential diagnosis, management suggestions for acute and recurrent/chronic foot and ankle conditions, as well as overall conservative management of foot and ankle pain.

The 16 hours of online instructor-led instruction allows for a personalized mentoring experience. Concepts from the online courses are applied to a complex patient case with specific patho-anatomical considerations as well as how the case is interpreted from clinical testing. All aspects of a comprehensive plan of care are presented, to include soft tissue and joint mobilization, dry needling, and sensorimotor control along with special topics with the most up to date information. Participant instructor interaction is encouraged during these lectures, where questions can be answered real-time.

Special topics include arthritis/arthrosis; instabilities of the syndesmosis, talocrural and subtalar joints; complications of ankle sprains such as anterior tibiotalar compression and sinus tarsi syndromes; peripheral neuropathies at the ankle and foot; soft tissue pathologies such as tendinitis, tenosynovitis, fasciitis, and bursitis; considerations of high and low arches; and differential diagnosis of metatarsalgia.
