Lumbar Spine and Lower Quartile
Weekend 8: Foot & Ankle plus Review
Kelly van der Zwan / Michael Monaghan
- The Ankle, Foot and Achilles – The first day of this weekend is dedicated to the ankle and foot. Theoretical concepts regarding the biomechanics and functional anatomy of the ankle/foot will be covered, along with discussion of the relevance to the entire lower limb kinetic chain. The relevant clinical presentations which are commonly associated with the ankle and foot will be discussed (in particular Achilles tendinopathy, ankle/foot ligament injury and stress fracture) within a clinical reasoning framework to aid differential diagnosis.
- Lower Quartile Revision – The second day will provide a day for reflection on the learning acquired throughout the lumbo-sacral spine and lower quartile programme. Participants will be encouraged to bring relevant case studies along for discussion and analysis during this day. A formative group ‘quiz’ will enable participants to gauge their learning through the programme. This day will also include specific revision of lumbar and SIJ manual therapy techniques.
