The foot and ankle comprise one of the most fascinating and complex areas of human anatomy and biomechanics.  Dysfunction in this anatomical region can be difficult to assess, and the same physiological movements often are referenced using several different terms.  Foot function can influence lower quarter kinematics and kinetics, as well as lower quarter function having the potential to influence foot kinematics and kinetics.  The purpose of this program is to enhance the ability to:  understand the biomechanics of this anatomic region; assess foot, ankle, and selected aspects of lower quarter dysfunction accurately; and plan and implement appropriate treatment regimens for these pathologies, including the use of foot orthoses and shoewear.

Educational Credit

A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hourswill be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre-approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, PTA, and ATs

BOC Board of Certification, Inc. Approved Provider # P-2563

Audience

This is an intermediate level workshop for PTs, PTAs, and ATs.

NOTE: Nothing in this course is to enable or permit the learner to apply techniques outside of the scope of practice in their individual state and discipline.

Objectives

  • Describe a system of nomenclature for identifying foot and ankle motion in each of the three cardinal planes.
  • Describe the specific joint axes of the talocrural, subtalar, and transverse tarsal joints.
  • Describe the biomechanical functions of the foot and ankle, and relate these functions to common pathologies in the lower quarter.
  • Perform a structural screening examination of the lower quarter and relate findings to possible foot, ankle, and lower quarter dysfunction.
  • Perform a thorough evaluation of the foot and ankle, including: a. Obtaining a meaningful history b. Gross observation of function and static/dynamic anomalies, c. Skilled palpation of osteology and soft tissue structures, d. An evaluation of the physiological ROM of the foot and ankle, e. An evaluation of normal accessory movements of the f/a. f. A neurological examination of the leg and foot, and g. An assessment of the specific structural deformities, traumatic injuries, and overuse injuries reviewed during the lecture/discussion segment of this program.
  • Explain the basic principles of orthotic and shoewear management.
  • Describe signs and symptoms, and suggested treatment plans for specific structural deformities, traumatic injuries, and overuse injuries.
  • Assess the lower quarter for some of the major developmental milestones related to musculoskeletal development.
