Dieser Kurs ist ein „We-recording“ – Die Aufnahme eines Webinars.

People frequently present with pain and dysfunction in the lower limb with impairments from more distal or proximal factors potentially contributing to the presentation. Assessment should adequately and objectively address these potential ‘drivers’ to ensure a holistic management approach is developed. However, it is also important to recognise that not all biomechanical ‘differences’ are relevant to the person’s presentation. That is, not all ‘deficits’ should be the target of intervention. This session will help develop your clinical reasoning skills related to the assessment and management of lower limb biomechanics to help determine when biomechanics may be relevant to your client’s presentation.

This session is also designed to help develop your confidence regarding the assessment and management of people presenting with foot and ankle pain. Whilst many people with foot and ankle pain that present to primary care make a full recovery, some go on to have long-term pain and dysfunction.

In this session, you will have demonstrated selected “special” or orthopaedic tests as well as manual handling and taping skills. You will also be asked to consider common presentations across the lifespan.

For the course „Ankle joint & foot in regards to the functional chain“ you will receive 2,5 CEU of 45 minutes each.
