6 Common Foot Types: Assessment and Treatment

This course takes a deeper dive into musculoskeletal and fascial anatomy of the foot before delving into six common foot types, how to assess them, common injuries seen with them, specific recommendations on how to address them, and a brief introduction to using foot mapping.

Clinical meets Functional: A Dual Perspective to Approaching Foot Dysfunction

Dr. Conley joins Dr. Emily Splichal for this 11 hour online course. Dive into dysfunctions of the forefoot, midfoot, and rearfoot and learn when you can treat from a functional perspective and when additional strategies may be necessary.

**Online Courses are not currently pre-approved for CEUs. We do have documentation available if you would like to submit to your board for approval.

Coming Soon!!

The Functional Gait Assessment Level One course is an in-person 16 contact hour course designed for health care practitioners interested in seeking advanced knowledge and understanding of lower extremity biomechanics in the gait cycle, as well as specific assessment strategies for the lower quarter with the purpose of restoring function, eliminating pain and normalizing gait for musculoskeletal patients. It is recommended that participants hold a certification or degree of higher education including but not limited to Doctor of Physical Therapy, Doctor of Chiropractic, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, or Certified Athletic Trainer.

This course involves connecting the relationship of the kinetic chain as well as the anatomy and biomechanics of the lower quarter. Participants will leave with a better understanding of how to assess the lower quarter through dynamic gait analysis, postural assessment, palpation, and dynamic orthopedic testing. We will discuss and demonstrate assessment techniques that will improve the clinician’s ability to identify and address musculoskeletal dysfunction and improve patient’s motor function.

During day 1, the participants will begin by learning a step by step approach to assess gait mechanics, both identifying normal gait parameters as well as aberrant patterns in the human gait cycle via lecture, case studies, and interactive labs.

During day 2, participants will dive deeper into specific assessment strategies for the forefoot, midfoot, rearfoot, ankle, hip, spine, and posterior chain. They will also learn to identify common congenital defects and their implications in the gait cycle. Each section of day two will have a hands-on laboratory session to practice assessment techniques amongst participants. This hands-on experience will give participants the tools to be able to apply their knowledge gained in the course immediately upon returning to patient care.

Participants will receive a certificate for successful completion of the course upon completing the Post Course Assessment with a score of 85% or higher. Participants will have 48 hours to complete the assessment.

“I would recommend the Gait Guru program to anyone interested in developing a detailed understanding of gait, both how to assess it and also how to treat injuries that are caused by it. It opened my eyes to critical aspects of lower body function and I use the information daily to the benefit of my patients. I already have had several patients where I can now clearly see the cause of their lower extremity injuries and have helped them where prior to this program I would have been off the mark. Thank you so much Gait Gurus!”


-Dr Adam Sundberg

“I just want to say thanks again for the [Functional Gait Assessment] course this weekend. I can’t tell you how many patients I have seen over the last three days that I’ve noticed something completely different in their movement patterns than when I evaluated them and have been able to start correcting things down at the foot that are really affecting them up the chain. AND, I’m getting really good pt buy in. Excited to keep educating myself on the foot and getting even better!”

-Dr Andrea Rector​

“I just wanted to thank you for the foot type course. I am a podiatrist and found the course very helpful which I will try to use more during my clinical assessments. Although surgically trained I still want to maximize what patients can do by increasing mobility in the foot and up the chain. Y’all are my favorite IG account for foot related things. Looking forward to more stuff from you.”

-Dr. Janie Trinh​

“Seriously guys, that class [foot types course] was amazing! I can’t wait to get back to work because there was so much that’s easy to understand and implement immediately. It makes me honestly excited!”

-TJ Knowles

“I have absolutely loved the ‘6 Different Foot Types’ online course from Gait Happens. I work in movement therapy and felt this has been a really important missing piece of the puzzle for me. I already know how important feet are (and frequently see clients who clearly have a foot problem causing issues all over their body) but lacked some understanding of the nitty gritty behind the mechanics of different foot types. This has pulled all of this together for me. I am looking forward to talking my clients through ‘their foot type’ to try and give even more client education and engagement from them. Thanks Dr Perez and Dr Conley.”
