Analyze foot and ankle exam findings including gait kinematics, neuromotor function, and musculoskeletal findings to design individualized treatment plans Apply advanced manual mobilization skills to joint and soft tissues to improve foot and ankle mobility and function Design a progressive strengthening program to improve motor control of the foot and ankle Design a comprehensive orthotic plan to improve function and gait for patients with identified foot/ankle dysfunction Fabricate a shoe-insert orthotic to support a structural and functional foot impairment.

Target Audience
This course is for those who have taken Amanda Hall’s Ambulation, Activity, and AFOs: Addressing the Ankle to Improve Gait and Function, online or in-person, OR with other prior experience or training for foot/ankle and ankle-foot-orthotics.

Learn hands-on advanced evaluation and treatment of the foot and ankle to improve gait and function for patients with pediatric, neurologic, and orthopedic health conditions. Practice an organized system to evaluate ankle function using a kinesiopathologic approach, determining key findings to develop a clinical hypothesis. Multiple labs will include the latest evidence-based interventions to improve foot and ankle function for individuals across the movement spectrum, including joint and soft tissue mobilizations, improving strength and motor control of the “foot core”, and addressing pain. Participants will also learn hands-on skills for orthotic design as well as foot/ankle taping techniques.
