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:

Associate Professor David Butler reveals the error that 90% of practitioners make in managing their patients.
I just put this blog together for you so that you can check if you're making this mistake, too.
In this quick clip you'll discover:
Put these actions into place now so you can get better clinical results immediately!
Here’s a quick video designed to help you avoid an 'evidence-based' action that has been demonstrated to hinder clinical outcomes.
This crucial information comes from Assoc. Professor David Butler’s presentation at the recent SA Podiatry Conference.
In 5 minutes you'll discover:
· the 180 degree twist that improves healing IMMEDIATELY
· the mindful choosing of words that changes your patient's 'pain perceptions'
· the case study demonstrating the 'one thing' you need to focus on with every patient
Associate Professor David Butler, expert in pain ‘revealed’ (or flashed??) the physiology of this statement at the SA Podiatry Conference held in Adelaide last week.
As a result, I will ‘expose’ in this 5 minute video (made exclusively for you):
Enjoy (but keep yourself ‘tidy’)!
If you've ever caused a MLA blister with your orthotic prescription, you've probably missed or overlooked one of three critical factors.
'Ted's Tips on MLA Blisters' reveals:

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.
Ankles sprains are a common problem our patients suffer from and yet, there is a consequence, talar displacement, that is often overlooked. Neglecting this displacement can have a significant effect on your treatment results.
In this blog I reveal how much talar displacement is 'acceptable' and how much is 'too much'.

You can take these tips and use them IMMEDIATELY for all of your ankle patients.
This video reveals the simple, effective clinical test that helps you determine if the cuboid is stuck or blocked.
Confirming this clinical presentation will help you craft your treatment plan for the most effective clinical outcomes for cuboid related MSK conditions.
Cuboid related problems (don't use the moniker 'Cuboid Syndrome!) can be the bane of many a practitioner!
A common problem that affects diagnostic and treatment efficacy is being accurate with your palpation and surface anatomy.
This 2 minute tip highlights the 2 key reference points to increase your anatomical accuracy of the cuboid by, well, heaps!!
(I should know! I failed my first anatomy exam on the cuboid in 1979... I've learnt a lot since then though!)
