Lower Extremity Dysfunction – How the Hip Affects the Knee, Ankle and Foot

This 2 –day course will teach you how to properly evaluate and address structural deviations of the hip, knee, foot and ankle through specifically sequenced corrective exercises. We will focus on how a one-joint deviation of the lower extremity can directly affect how the other joints align, function and compensate. You will learn what the 6 most common lower extremity deviations are, the most common compensations that occur in the hips, knees, feet and ankles and how these compensations affect your client. You will also learn how to choose the proper corrective exercise program, feel the effects of each of the programs and how to properly cue each exercise. In addition we will have program progressions for each of the 6 lower extremity deviation programs. You will leave this course with not only an increased knowledge base, but also a new way to assess and help your clients with their hip, knee, foot and ankle dysfunctions. The end result is happy clients and increased referrals.
