Description

Why are we telling our patients with foot pain to brace the foot with an orthotic for years at a time? We would never tell our patients with low back pain to wear a back brace for years at a time... Bracing the foot is not always the best option.  This recording will present corrective exercise strategies to address both mobility AND stability so that you can customize your treatment plan for the patient in front of you.

Learn from a leader in the field! Dr. Courtney Conley, founder of Gait Happens, an online education platform specializing in foot and gait mechanics with over 87,000 followers on Instagram will examine: 

  • How to improve foot function without using an orthotic or brace 
  • Simple and effective taping strategies for the 4 most common diagnoses  
  • How to eliminate foot pain and unnecessary procedures! 

She’ll arm you with treatment strategies for the diagnoses you treat all the time: heel pain, ankle pain, bunions, neuromas, pain with walking. You’ll walk away with strategies to help your patients move better and function more efficiently.
