Every good initial session with a client begins with a thorough evaluation of their movement ability and an exploration of the areas of their body that do not move as they should.
Whether your new client is looking to reduce pain and/or improve their performance, we’ll show you that starting with the feet and exploring the foot’s connection to posture, balance and walking is key.
Join us as we ‘walk’ (ha!) through a discussion about the stability and rigidity of the feet, examine shoe choices, orthotic prescription and use, and talk about various ankle movement strategies.
How to support the ankles with the feet and understand force translation up through the knees, into the hip, and then across the pelvis
