Description

“My feet are killing me!”...but it’s never just a foot problem.

In some situations, the best foot orthotic may be...the glutes!

Join Dr. Courtney Conley, founder of Gait Happens, an online education platform specializing in foot and gait mechanics with over 100,000 followers on Instagram, as she explores:   

  • Functional footwear and how to avoid bunions 
  • Corrective strategies for the most common foot diagnoses in women 
  • Why intrinsic foot strength is a critical player in movement efficiency 

You’ll learn effective interventions that require as little equipment as possible, so that the patient can maximize what their body is doing.  She’ll also bring to light new evidence that shows something as simple as dorsiflexion can have a significant impact on the pelvic floor – yet another reason to get out of those heels! Filled with innovative strategies, you are sure to be able to implement these techniques immediately with your own patients.

The most amazing vehicle we will ever own is the one we all got for free.  Let’s keep those feet healthy, one step at a time. A strong foot is a strong body.
