  Enroll in Course

The human foot is a fascinatingly complex and powerful aspect of human function and performance, but what happens when this important structure begins to break down. What happens when the corrective exercise and an integrated approach isn't provide results?

Join Drs Courtney Conley & Emily Splichal as they address these difficult and chronic foot presentations. Join the two leading women in functional foot education for this 4-part lecture series and learn about their unique perspectives on chronic foot function and pathology.

Video #1 - Foundations in Foot Function

Video #2 - Advanced Functional Foot Concepts

This video kicks off with key concepts of foot function from an integrated perspective. Get those questions answered as it relates to the difference between mid foot vs. rear foot pronation, forefoot vs. toe splay, ankle plantar and dorsiflexion - and the the great toe and gait.

Video #3 - The Chronic Forefoot

Juvenile hallux valgus, rigid hammertoes, crossover 2nd, neuromas and sesamoiditis - all hot topics as it relates to feet, function and footwear. Surgery vs. therapy, which is best for each condition? Understand the dual perspectives for when these forefoot imbalances become chronic.

Video # 4 - The Chronic Midfoot

Part 4 continues up the foot as we enter the area of the longitudinal arches. We have posterior tibial function to the medial side and peroneal function to the lateral. Expand your understanding of the 4 stages of PTTD, top of foot pain, cuboid syndrome plus more!

Video #5 - The Chronic Rearfoot

We wrap up this series with the most commonly presented imbalances of the foot and ankle - plantar fasciosis, Achilles tendinopathy and chronic ankle instability. Learn the role of correct exercise and when Conley decides to refer to Splichal for regenerative medicine or surgical consideration.

All 4 parts of this series will bring you the unique perspective of Dr Emily + Dr Courtney and empower you, the listener, to better understand what to do in these more complex chronic cases.
