How do you feel about mobilization of the subtalar joint? Most people have a hard time with planer immobilizations of a tri–planar joint. That’s a saddle articulation and Kaltenborn’s rules don’t work. I’m going to show you video of some techniques to make that happen, you will learn how to improve the subtalar joint function. Subtalar joint—its primary job is torque conversion and if your patient can’t convert torque, the patient will present with proximal dysfunction of the knee and the SI joint. Maybe your SI joint patient has actually been a foot problem.
This course will present information on how to perform a proper biomechanical screen of the lower extremity to rule out foot and ankle dysfunction. Josh Bailey will demonstrate a thorough biomechanical screen and then progress into a full evaluation of the foot and ankle. Techniques demonstrated and discussed will pertain to goniometric measurements, interpreting your findings, joint mobilization, manual muscle testing and differential diagnosis to rule out such diagnoses as fat pad atrophy. lateral plantar nerve entrapment, plantar fasciitis and heel pain syndrome.
A comprehensive overview of a variety of treatment techniques will be demonstrated and discussed to include joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilization, functional exercises and how to cast for orthotics.
