This course uses the movement system impairment syndromes approach, symptom modification procedure, and principles of motor learning to address the common problem of plantar heel pain syndromes.
1.Distinguish the biomechanics of plantar aponeurosis including at least the two length modulating mechanisms shortening or compression of longitudinal arch, lengthening
or increasing excursion of the 1st MTPJ.
2.Differentiate actions of plantar intrinsic foot muscles.
3.Differentiate the kinetics occurring at the level of the foot when walking/running during the 3 periods of stance phase (heel rocker, ankle rocker, and forefoot rocker periods) and how slight deviations can lead to microtrauma that can lead to microtrauma.
4.Recognize symptoms, key test & signs, contributing/risk factors, differential movement & associated diagnosis, potential medical diagnosis requiring referral, and interventions for 3 potential kinesiopatholgic model sub-classifications of plantar heel pain syndrome (heel rocker period of stance deviations impact loading; ankle rocker period of stance deviations ↑ pronation; forefoot rocker period of stance deviations of 1st MTPJ dorsiflexion).
5.Recognize a symptom modification procedure to address plantar heel pain syndrome.
6.Identify patient specific movement/functional skill training using principles of good verbal cuing/prompting and feedback to alter deviant movements associated with each
sub classification of plantar heel pain syndrome.
How this course addresses and meets the needs of course attendees:
This course provides:
- A process to enhance and sharpen the clinician’s well-established toolkit.
- Action to provide case level evidence of efficient valuable patient centered care.
- Information that can lead to personalized treatment.
- Specific movement/functional skill training for plantar heel pain syndrome which is more effective in the short term and long term than frequently prescribed exercise – faster results, more durable.
