The Workshop represents a composite of evidence-based theory and practical assessment techniques – taken from many sources. Approximately 80% of the population are affected by Foot Dysfunction (abnormal foot motion). Abnormal foot motion, leads to abnormal gait, which often leads to postural issues and/or injury along the Kinetic-Chain.

Both the over-pronated and the under-pronated foot can predispose to injury. Furthermore, increased levels of physical activities increase susceptibility of overuse injury.


  • To Increase awareness of the deleterious effects of abnormal foot motion (foot dysfunction) and demonstrate how the foot can predispose the patient to overuse injury along the Kinetic-Chain, especially within the low-back and pelvic region.
  • To recognise different foot types and associated foot dysfunction.
  • To examine and assess the foot – identify common problems


On completion of the workshop, delegates will have an introductory (evidence-based) understanding of clinical biomechanics and the detrimental effects of foot dysfunction. Delegates will be capable of carrying out simple but effective examination and assessment techniques to identify simple pathological problems in the ‘Kinetic-Chain’ – associated with foot dysfunction. Moreover, delegates develop a wider scope of management strategies. Thereby, delegates should be more capable of offering their patients a mulitfactorial and/or multidisciplinary approach to care or referral. These, newly acquired clinical skills will both compliment and further enhance the scope and competence of existing professional services.


All forms of therapists wish to broaden their treatment base – especially those that work with patients with low-back and pelvic pain.
