This Webinar is for Practitioners only
This webinar describes how pediatric foot & gait development is worsening due to the influences of a modern lifestyle. Specifically, it addresses why pediatric flat foot is never "asymptomatic", and its negative effects on gait and postural control.
1 hour course non-CEU
"Good foot development doesn’t occur just because we’ve been on the planet for a number of years! It needs a crucial time period of IDEAL function to correctly influence soft tissue structure, ligament status, muscle activity, boney architecture, & nervous system maturation, so that we can limit compensations & make our feet last step after step, hour after hour, year after year!” (Liesa)
