Differential Diagnosis, Evaluation and Advanced Intervention Techniques for Patients with Foot and Ankle Complaints with special speakers, Stephen Paulseth and RobRoy Martin

November 9-10, 2019

There are a variety of pathologic processes that can affect physical therapy practice when patients present with foot and ankle related symptoms. Many of these pathologies are of musculoskeletal origin and amenable to physical therapy intervention. However, in the direct access model for physical therapists, patients may present with non-musculoskeletal related complaints. This course will outline techniques for a logical evaluation and systematic diagnosis of both musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal pathologies. Manual therapy and taping techniques can be important components of a comprehensive rehabilitation program when treating individuals with musculoskeletal related foot and ankle pathologies. This course will teach manual therapy, taping techniques, and function exercises directed at the joints of the foot and ankle complex. Evidence-based practice guidelines, anatomical/biomechanical considerations, and hands-on skills will be emphasized in this lab-intensive course.
