This seminar aims to provide a good theoretical understanding of concepts and ideas around the Biomechanical assessment of lower limb function, with a focus on participating in sporting activities.
It will also explore aspects of assessment techniques and how these fit into the wider context of patient/client management.
It is envisaged that this day will provide a sound theoretical basis that will increase practitioner's confidence, and encourage further personal study.
Core Clinical Update Series: This course forms part of the Core Clinical Update Series.
- Biomechanical assessment of the lower limb - This will provide an overview of current theory regarding function of the foot and leg and provide a basis for assessment and thus treatment planning
- Gait analysis - A review of gait analysis methods with the clinical application of inshoe pressure analysis and 3d gait analysis
- Pod Sports medicine - This section will review clinical assessment techniques which allow a diagnosis to be formulated. By linking this to appropriate investigations, available treatment modalities and reviewing a range of conditions of the foot, ankle and lower leg, it will allow the delegates to have a practical foundation for determining a treatment plan
- Case studies - This section will review a range of case histories to re-inforce the topics of the day
MSK clinicians, individuals working in sports therapies, students, practitioners with an interest in biomechanics, individuals working within both private practice, NHS, or voluntary organisations.
