Hyperkeratosis of the Foot:  Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Hyperkeratosis is the most common disorder of the adult foot.  In most cases the causes are mechanical in nature and should be managed appropriately.  A minority of cases are caused by a range of other conditions.  Effective treatment for these requires a firm diagnosis.  Where the aetiology is uncertain referral to a specialist should be sought.

Groin Pain:  A View from Below

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Chronic groin pain is a common problem in athletes. The multifactorial nature and the various anatomical structures that contribute to groin pain have made the condition difficult to prevent and manage. Early detection and intervention are the keys to optimal management and prevention of chronic injury. This course provides the clinician and podiatrist in particular with an understanding of the entity, focuses on the biomechanical risks associated with groin pain from a lower extremity perspective and introduces the role of podiatry as an effective adjunct to the multi-disciplinary groin management team.

Footwear Selection

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Matching a foot and shoe is a process that requires thought, scientific measurement, and rationale. Though the research on shoe selection is still incomplete, shoe selection based on foot structure and measures of forefoot orientation, arch height and rear foot standing posture can aid in injury prevention.

    This course offers information on the types of running shoes, arationale and overall paradigm for shoe fitting using scientific methodology, as well as scientific literature related to orthotics.

Principles of Injury Prevention:  Part 3:  Equipment, Running Shoes, Spikes, Boots and Ski.  Tennis Racquets and Appropriate Surfaces

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The science of sports injury prevention has grown exponentially over the past two decades. We know that interventions can prevent major knee, ankle and other injuries. This course will help you to help your sports clients to reduce the risk of injury. You will gain a thorough understanding of how sports injuries occur. Then you will gain in-depth knowledge of the factors that can reduce the risk of injury – warm-up, stretching, taping and bracing, equipment, surfaces, training, envelope of function and the central governor model for the limit of performance and their appropriate use.
