Lower Limb Biomechanics & Orthotic Therapy

Learn how to successfully diagnose lower limb biomechanical conditions and integrate orthotic therapy into the treatment regime.

This course presents a foundational understanding of lower limb biomechanics, teaching biomechanical assessment techniques and practical in-clinic orthotic prescription, modification & fitting.

At the completion of this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Identify Neutral Calcaneal Stance Position (NCSP)
  • Assess for Structural Leg Length Discrepancy
  • Heat & mould orthotics to the patient's STJN.

Evaluate & treat forefoot mechanics, including:
  • Forefoot Valgus & Forefoot Varus
  • Plantarflexed 1st Ray
  • Dorsiflexed 1st Ray

Perform chair-side orthotic modification, including:
  • Plantar fascial groove to treat tight Fascia
  • Extrinsic & intrinsic metatarsal dome for Metatarsalgia & Mortons Neuroma
  • 1st Metatarsal deflection to treat Plantarflexed 1st
  • Forefoot varus & valgus posting
  • Morton's Extension for HAV, Dorsiflexed 1st & Hallux Limitus
