This course will enable health care providers to gain a practical knowledge of the possible anatomical & biomechanical factors leading to persistent heel pain and disability.
The course will review a clinically focused approach to the evaluation of persistent plantar heel pain and all the potential differential diagnoses
Based on current studies, the management options reviewed will include
i) Manual therapies … no “plantar fascia stretches” will be taught; as in my humble opinion, plantar fascia can NOT be stretched
ii) Effective muscular and proprioceptive retraining exercises
iii) The role of shoes and insoles
iv) Knowing when there may be a central sensitization component
