You will quickly discover how the lower extremities function as part of the kinetic chain in which a global assessment approach is essential to identify the origin of dysfunction.
Our promise to you - this training is different than the standard orthopedic skills course. Constant emphasis is applied to function of the whole person through the entire kinetic chain AND neurocognitive contributions are presented. You’ll learn:
Put your new skills into action through multiple case studies that include a detailed look at the assessment, objective findings, treatment approaches, and outcomes.
You will confidently implement programs for return to sport along with how to advise footwear recommendations based on your client’s individual needs. Purchase now for a course that guarantees better outcomes for both you and your patients.
