This course on evidence-based treatment of the foot and ankle is presented by Dr. Alexis Wright PT, PhD, DPT, FAAOMPT. Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to recognize the more prevalent foot and ankle pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice and gain an understanding of the etiology behind each of the pathologies. The concordant techniques used to target the primary impairment are explained, as well as the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors, and the techniques used to target global conditional issues. Talocrural and subtalar mobilizations and manipulations are demonstrated with a model. Analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications. Current research is presented throughout the course to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a 19 course comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

1. Common Pathologies of the Foot and Ankle

Recognize the more prevalent foot and ankle-oriented pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice. Distinguish the etiology behind each of the pathologies. Evaluate the treatment-oriented evidence behind each of the disease processes

2. Classification Systems of the Foot and Ankle

Recognize the proposed benefit to classifying foot and ankle disorders and treatments by similarity. Defend that classifications do not need to be mutually exclusive.

3. Interventions of the Foot and Ankle

Describe the clinical utility of concordant based interventions targeted to the primary impairment. Demonstrate foot and ankle oriented movement based techniques. Demonstrate foot and ankle specific stretching and strengthening techniques.

4. Adjunctive Interventions to Relieve Movement Issues at Adjacent Body Segments

Review the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors. Analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications.

5. Interventions that Address Global Issues Pertinent to Conditions

Review and apply techniques used to target global conditional issues. Analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications.
