Diagnosis and Management of the Foot and Ankle
8 Contact hours / 0.8 CEUs
The foot and ankle joint complex is responsible for reacting to the terrain that interacts with and changing the way the lower extremity responds to the specific task being performed. Dr. Valerie Phelps, Dr. Jean-Michel Brismèe, Dr. John Woolf and Dr. Phil Sizer help participants to understand the structural diagnosis with knowledge of anatomy and surface anatomy, understand exactly where to place the attention when diagnosing and treating common foot and ankle joint musculoskeletal conditions.
The IAOM-US Diagnosis and Management of the Foot and Ankle online course takes an in-depth look at primary and secondary pathoanatomy, biomechanics, basic ands pecific clinical examination and interpretation, management suggestions and specific approaches to diagnose and treat foot and ankle related disorders.
This course emphasizes didactic or theoretical content that is delivered through online lectures and materials (emanuals*: course slides, study guide and suggested reading). This is a self-pace on-line course available 24/7. Youcan start and stop your viewing time as needed. It is segmented into lecture modules plus a final quiz to gauge your understanding. The study guide is provided to help focus your learning experience and prepare you to apply this knowledge into your daily clinical practice. This online course is perfect complement to the IAOM-US Differential Diagnosis and Musculoskeletal Management of the Foot and Ankle hands-on, lab-based portion.
Target Audience: PT, PTA, AT
