Foot and ankle pathology is common in physical therapy practice. Overuse injuries are often a result of abnormal foot mechanics or due to imbalances higher in the kinetic chain. This class will describe techniques for improving muscle balance in the lower kinetic chain and specific exercises for the foot and ankle.

ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 2 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).
