Trusted By:

Ever had a patient who's tried everything for their foot, knee or hip pain but nothing's worked?

Or maybe a client who’s movement patterns are clearly contributing to their distress, but you can’t pinpoint exactly where to start?

As clinicians this is such a challenge. And with the limited training we receive on the lower extremity and its function in relation to the entire kinetic chain, it can be daunting to know what to offer these patients.

Gait Courses for Clinicians and Health Professionals

But what if you had the tools to connect the dots and help them finally find relief?

There’s nothing quite like that feeling when a patient who’s been struggling for so long tells you they can finally walk/run/hike with less pain or even without pain.

After all, didn’t we get in this business to change lives??

Now you can help patients move past pain with:

"Thank you for Gait Foundations: Managing Common Presentations of the Foot. I am a podiatrist and found the course very helpful and I will use it 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. Looking forward to more stuff from you."

"I absolutely loved Gait Foundations: Managing Common Presentations of the Foot! This has been a really important missing piece of the puzzle. 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 the understanding of the nitty gritty behind the mechanics of different foot types. This has pulled all of this together for me. I'm looking forward to using this with my clients. Thanks Dr Perez and Dr Conley."
