Many physical therapists have had trouble treating patients with lingering foot and ankle pain long after a relatively mild or moderate ankle sprain. Often this can be due to things like a fixated talus, neuropathic pain or muscular trigger points.

The Comprehensive Manual Therapy Approach to Hip, Knee and Foot Pathology course will help to give PTs - and others dealing in this area of diagnosis and treatment - a clear understanding of the biomechanics of the ankle and offers a variety of strategies to help diagnose and treat such stubborn issues.

The course will be taught by experienced Hands-On Seminars instructor and clinical instructor with the University of Alberta, Kevin Okamura.

This comprehensive instruction will cover integrated, comprehensive techniques from the following approaches:

·    Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
·    Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
·    Strain & Counter Strain (SCS)
·    Hip - Knee & Foot Mobilization - Manipulation
·    Neurofascial Mobilization
·    Hip - Knee & Foot Stabilization
·    Proprioceptive Training

Those attending will further enhance their skills in differential diagnosis, and evaluation and treatment methods of Hip, Knee & Foot pathology.

Participants will learn advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques along with extensive lab sessions. The instructors use very effective didactic approaches, utilizing advanced multimedia methods.
