From General Podiatrist to MSK Specialist - P Ferguson

Mar 09, 2017

In 2011, Pete spent about 80% of his clinical time delivering general treatments and 20% MSK work.

Today, Pete spends 80+% delivering MSK services and less than 20% of his time providing general treatments (GT's).

How did he make that transition?

In this precise interview, Pete reveals:

  • Why 'failed treatments' are a big part of his caseload now
  • How diabetic neuropathy and cuboid dysfunction can be mistaken for each other
  • His scenic route to 'Dynamic Testing' 
  • How GT's played a pivotal role in his progression to an MSK Specialist

If you are keen to grow your MSK caseload from GT practice, grab a pen (or your iPad) and learn from someone who's done it!

Pelvic Evaluation for Lower Limb Conditions

Oct 04, 2016

How can you tell if the lower limb condition(s) you’re treating are caused by a pelvic compensation?

Interviewing Clifton Bradeley, UK Podiatrist & MSk Specialist, was eye-opening, to say the least!

Unfortunately for Clifton, a leg length difference and pelvic imbalance ended his professional running career. However, he still holds the indoor record for the fastest 1500m Senior Boys record.

Fortunately for you, Clifton has spent his career understanding pelvic dysfunction as it relates to the lower limb.

In this concise interview, Clifton reveals:

  • What you can do to create the most effective gait analysis process in your clinic (without costing a bomb!)
  • What single anatomical site you must observe to tell you if your client has a pelvic dysfunction (and it’s not in the foot, leg or bum!)
  • What priceless assessment tool to use (that you already own!)
  • What heel raise % to use and why 
  • What to watch out for in terms of common compensation patterns (that will...

OVER-PRONATION? UNLOCKED MIDFOOT? WTF?

Sep 16, 2016

Those terms; over-pronation or unstable midfoot – are they accurate? Do they actually mean anything?

 

My last blog on a cuboid related case study generated a number of questions and comments about my use of the terms ‘over-pronation’ and ‘unstable midfoot’. Some of the comments ended with ‘…whatever that means’.

 

In this blog I clarify my use of these terms (with the help of respected researcher, Craig Payne).

 

This is important for you to understand because then you can:

  • Add this understanding to your bank of resources
  • Have greater confidence in achieving even better clinical outcomes

I also demonstrate the script we use in our clinics to educate our clients on the MSK compensations of 'over-pronation' and 'unlocked midfoot'.

Cuboids - When things don't work out...

Sep 06, 2016

 I’ve been filling in as a locum in one of our clinics last week and had this cuboid case that just didn’t go according to plan.

 So I’ve just put together this new video for you to give you:

  • The typical things that go wrong with cuboid related conditions (even after your treatments)
  • The clinical tests to help you zero in on what actually needs to be treated (which is often not the symptomatic site)
  • A real world patient that all of this actually happened to (along with my frustrations in helping her). A great, real time, real world case study where EVERYTHING is revealed!

 It’s all unscripted and totally real. You’ll see how I apply what I’ve been showing you in the last two blogs implemented  in  a real-world scenario. This example shows you exactly how I navigated my way through managing and treating Deb T., a 60 y.o. lady and her debilitating cuboid case.
