If only you'd been taught THIS at university!

Jul 06, 2016

I recently asked podiatry graduates about exercises and what they were taught at university.

Well, their answers SHOCKED me!

None of them recalled being taught anything about exercises, let alone Structured Exercise Plans [S.E.P.’s].

 And given that exercises can play a crucial role in helping patients get better clinical outcomes (especially when combined with orthotic therapy), this lack of education at university is worrying, to say the very least.

To rectify the situation, I’ve just put together this quick 5 minute video to give you:

  • The physiological imperative of combining S.E.P.’s with your orthotic therapy
  • The S.E.P.’s that can improve your orthotic outcomes by 32%
  • The reason why your patients are crying out for S.E.P.’s

What you must know about treating HAV conservatively

May 02, 2016

This blog answers HAV questions from FMT graduate Aaron Wicks, podiatrist. I reckon you’ll find the information helpful too.

The video covers:

·       How to determine when the angle of displacement is too high to treat conservatively

·       How to dramatically improve your patient’s HAV pain level

·       How a specific joint capsule site MUST be released to help HAV (that’s not even in the foot!)

·       How three clinical signs of osteochondral lesions of the talus will help you determine when you need to refer for an MRI


BTW, for your convenience, I’ve put all three videos together and made it one video. That way you can get the complete lowdown in one hit.
Thanks again, Aaron, for your great questions.
