Phoenix – Physical Therapists with Ideal Physical Therapy attend Lower Extremity Biomechanics Seminar to continue education and improve skills.
Members from all of Ideal Physical Therapy’s fourteen locations recently attended a seminar to further their education and improve their practice. The seminar, called “Lower Extremity Biomechanics: Clinical Applications and Problem Solving," was a two day event that took place October 6-7, 2012.
The seminar was sponsored by Ideal Physical Therapy and it gave their staff an opportunity to learn new information they could use to improve their skills. Led by Brian Hoke, DPT, SCS, and assisted by Daniel Brauning, MPT, ATC, MTC, the seminar received a large turnout with around twenty therapists in attendance.
Over the course of the two day event, therapists discussed topics such as Anatomy, Terminology, and Joint Biomechanics of the Foot and Ankle, and Functional Biomechanics of Stance and Gait. Demonstrations and labs were also administered for hands on learning.
