In closed chain kinematic the foot is the foundation to human movement. This means that any dysfunction in the foot must impact knee, hip and lower back alignment. Conversely, in open chain kinematics, hip strength controls knee and foot posture. Learn one of the most effective techniques for improving foot posture, controlling knee pain and strengthening the hip. After this workshop you will fully appreciate the power of barefoot work. Improve posture and build strength - with barefoot balance training. Dr. Splichal is actively involved in barefoot training research and barefoot education as it relates to athletic performance, injury prevention and human movement dysfunction.
