Instructor: Roberta Nole, MA, PT, C.Ped
This course is for practitioners only
This webinar examines forefoot valgus and the etiology of, if it is flexible or rigid, plus how that can be determined by rearfoot function. The biomechanical implications of the cavus foot will be reviewed, examining foot morphology, functional gait, callus patterns, and common clinical conditions. This webinar details common components of a structural cavus foot, including an Uncompensated Rearfoot Varus with a Forefoot Valgus. In comparison, a Compensated Rearfoot with a Forefoot valgus or plantarflexed first metatarsal will be examined in detail. Along with common causes of in-toe gait and associated pathologies. In addition to the mechanics of gait, recommendations for orthotic designs to treat the A & B foot-types will be examined, along with ideal athletic footwear features.
Participants will be required to complete and submit a post webinar quiz for CEU eligibility.
