Happy Feet: Improving Foot Function There are so many reasons for foot pain, and many of the typical interventions to help fix it are out-dated and short-sighted.
This workshop will introduce you to the emerging science behind foot pain and optimal foot function. We will look at what's really happening with your feet and how to create the opportunity for better function and performance. You will learn and practice some great techniques to relieve pain and improve the way the foot moves, supporting the knee, hip and core.
Bring your sneakers, orthotics or whatever other "foot tool" you currently use so that we can discuss pros and cons. Hours: 90min - full day
Balance vs. Proprioception Do you know the difference? Do you know that there is a difference in the methods required to rehab each? This course looks at reconciling the research and common practices around training balance and proprioception, and the tools we use to gain improved balance and proprioception. This course will also explore simple and effective drills to incorporate into your rehab, and training to improve patient outcomes and performance. Hours: 1-3
The Hip Hinge - A Fountain of Youth Loss of the ability to be both flexible and strong in the hips can be associated with low back pain, increased risk of falls and can drastically decrease strength in lifts. Whether loaded or body weight, the hip hinge pattern is a vital movement to improving and ensuring quality of life. This course will look at the key components of the hinge, how to identify problems and how to correct the hip hinge so that any one, of any age or ability, can practice this powerful movement. Hours: 1-3
Iliopsoas Funeral Yeah iliopsoas isn't a thing. There is no such muscle! Does this intrigue you? Make you a little upset? Confused? This fun and informative workshop explores the truth about this forced pair, and the true role of the psoas muscle. We explore the anatomy and function of both muscles, why we may or may not want to treat the psoas, how to assses psoas function and how we can better approach this whole confused mess of mashed up muscles. Hours: 1-3
All About IAP This course will introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of the intrinsic core. We will explore ways to assess, treat and improve the functioning of the deep core so that we are able to develop healthy intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). We will cover assessment and treatment as it relates to breathing, including some amaxing drills to improve function of the thoracic diaphragm. The ability to develop IAP is associated with prevention and treatment of low back pain, tightness in hips, pelvic floor dysfunction, disorders of the abdominal wall (like hernia and diastasis recti) and can improve athletic performance. Hours: 4-6
This one-hour consultation can be used to help with assessment/treatment of a client/patient or to discuss treatment or assessment protocols one-on-one.

Consults are done through Zoom, FaceTime or similar platform.
