Investment: $119.99 CAN (approximately 6 Hours) *DISCOUNTED*
A fundamental understanding of anatomy and anatomical terminology is suggested.
The focus of this course is on assessment through observation and movement. Suggested modalities used to correct foot conditions include pin & stretch, muscle stripping, passive stretch, joint mobilization, isometrics, and remedial exercise.
There are so many reasons for foot pain, and many of the typical interventions are out-dated and short-sighted. This course will introduce you to the emerging science behind foot pain and optimal foot function. We will look at what's really happening with your feet and how to create the opportunity for better function and performance.
You will learn and practice techniques to relieve pain and improve the way the foot moves. This online, self-directed course will help you to recognize when foot pain may be linked to knee, hip and core dysfunction, assessment techniques to identify where there are issues and ways to make corrections and provide purposeful, effective and evidence-informed home care to ensure success.
This course involves a combination of video powerpoint lectures, demonstrations, and downloadable documents to support learning.
Students will receive a certificate after successful completion of quizzes and an assignment submitted on the Udemy platform.
