Would you like to increase your skills with orthotic recommendations? Are you interested in increasing your treatment repertoire for the foot and ankle for pediatric and adult patients with neurological, developmental and/or orthopedic diagnoses? This course presents a movement systems approach to management of the foot and ankle. Using a kinesiopathological lens, participants examine the effect of repeated movements, sustained alignments, cumulative micro-trauma, and altered relative flexibility on the function of the ankle. This course presents a comprehensive approach to care based on differential diagnosis, while examining the evidence for interventions that maximize the resiliency of the ankle complex through skeletal maturation and into adulthood. Participants learn hands-on skills for an integrated approach including mobilizations to promote adaptive relative flexibility; improving intrinsic stability through strengthening of the “foot core;” and interventions to positively impact neuroplasticity. Participants also actively use the ICF model to guide recommendations for targeted use of the external support of orthoses and casts to guide adaptive tissue-specific stresses.
- Recognize the interplay of Musculoskeletal and Neuromuscular Movement System Diagnoses and neuroplastic changes on foot and ankle dysfunction.
- Perform a detailed foot and ankle examination including gait kinematics, neuromotor function, and musculoskeletal structures.
- Develop a comprehensive plan of care for the foot and ankle to improve gait in the context of supporting best structural outcome.
- Perform treatment techniques to address relative flexibility and promote progressive strengthening in foot and ankle for function.
- Make detailed recommendations for casting and orthotic interventions.
Amanda Hall received her MPT from the University of Washington in 2001. She was certified as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist in 2011, and as an Assistive Technology Professional in 2017. She has developed a framework for foot and ankle intervention including therapeutic casting and orthotic design based on developmental kinesiopathology, differential diagnosis, manual therapy, and alignment for therapeutic gait. Amanda’s clinical practice is at the HSC Pediatric Center in Washington, DC, where she provides therapeutic casting, orthotic evaluations, and foot and ankle intervention, as well as clinical consultation and private practice for adult casting, orthotics, and foot/ankle management. Amanda has presented her work nationally, including at APTA’s Combined Sections Meetings (CSM), American Academy of Pediatric PT’s Annual Conference (APPTAC), and at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
