One Day of Instruction on
Clinical Management of Foot Related Disorders
Using In-Office Shoe Insert Applications and Orthotic Techniques©

Saturday, March 2, 2019
Walnut, CA

"Walk This Way" is a one day practical experience for physical medicine clinicians. Practitioners who would like to provide more effective prefabricated or direct molded-to-the-foot inserts in their patient's shoes would benefit from this course. You will improve your application skills by integrating observational gait parameters when selecting and modifying shoe inlays. The role and application of various prefabricated shoe inserts (temporary & durable) on lower extremity biomechanics is described, discussed and experienced. What to apply, how to apply, alter various contours, components and material combinations are shown and practiced by participants. Attendees also get direct hands on guidance in selecting, fabricating and modifying direct molded-to-the-foot inserts, used to promote more comfortable gait and efficient foot posture for your patients.
