Foot, Ankle, Knee
October 5, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm£250.00
For the 3rd of our one day tutorial workshop is the chance to revisit the anatomy and conditions of the foot, knee, and ankle, how their function can influence the whole body.
Exploring ways that patients can create change for themselves whilst learning to live with OA and RA, or unexplained foot pain. From creating strategies that could involve measuring rest and movement.
Recovery from knee replacement, with hands on approach.
The aim of these groups is to create more focused small-group training, in a friendly setting. Each day will begin with coaching skills, to increase your confidence in enabling the people we treat to tackle the mental aspects of their progression to better movement.
We will then move on to practical hands-on work, with a focus on precision; how to soften up our touch, with the aim of moving deeper into the soft tissue structure, to create a neurological ‘safe space’. We will focus on intention, what this means, and how to feel at ease with this as therapist.
We will round up the day with movements, based on Polestar pre-Pilates movements, exploring ways to enable the people we treat to do the ‘homework.’
With each workshop there will be a link to YouTube where the movement part will be there for to go over.
There will also be a Zoom meeting 3 to 4 weeks later (date will be confirmed with the group) for follow up thoughts and questions on a Friday afternoon between 4 & 5pm
Tea/coffee/lunch is provided
