The Complete Foot Care Course is a multidisciplinary course that emphasizes the non-surgical team approach to foot and ankle care. In didactic morning sessions, faculty - including surgeons, radiologists, physical therapists, nurses, athletic trainers, pedorthists, and orthotists - will address the basics of the foot and ankle evaluation and relevant biomechanics. Other program topics will include:
  • Treatment of Metatarsalgia
  • Hallux Rigidus
  • Hallux Valgus
  • Pes Planus
  • Cavus Foot
  • Trauma: sprains, fractures, sports injuries, rheumatoid and ankle degenerative joint disease
  • Team Care of the Diabetic Patient

Afternoon breakout sessions will address foot and ankle exams, imaging, orthotics, athletic taping and bracing, foot mechanics and gait analysis, total contact casting, wound care, and other common injuries of the foot and ankle with case presentations and hands-on demonstrations that will further illustrate treatment principles and facilitate open discussion.

Who should attend
The target audience is physicians and health care professionals involved in all aspects of foot care, and the faculty and program will reflect this diverse audience and educational need.
