Each foot has 33 joints — a quarter of all your joints are in your feet!!! Do you think your feet were meant to move? Yet, the typical solutions offered for foot issues involve motion prevention and arch support. No other body region is treated this way. No one ever says when you sprain an ankle: “here, walk with crutches and wear a brace for the rest of your life.” Rather, we use crutches and braces as appropriate while rehabbing to restore strength, mobility, and function — i.e. we restore optimal biomechanics. Why are the feet treated so differently?

Re motion prevention as a strategy — Q: how does any joint or body region get stronger? A: MOVEMENT!!!

Re support as a strategy: “If you artificially support the body, the body stops supporting itself.” Andreo Spina

Think about it…our typical solutions for feet, simply result in weaker, less mobile feet! NOTE: Please do not interpret this as a call to run out and buy minimalist shoes with zero preparation.

In this workshop we will cover:
1. “Ideal” biomechanics and function of your feet and related structures — A conceptual and experiential approach: build a movement in your mind (conceptualize), build a movement in your body (experience)! Besides developing an understanding of the biomechanics of your feet, we will explore their role in gait (walking).

2. How to assess your own feet and related structures — Using the above understanding of “ideal” biomechanics and function, you will learn some assessments so you can begin to troubleshoot your own needs.

3. Movement based solutions, AKA corrective exercises — A set of exercises addressing findings from the above self-assessments.
