The lower extremity is clearly the unsung hero of the body, doing amazing amounts of work that largely goes unnoticed. When pain does occur, many soft-tissue problems present with the same symptoms as more serious intra-joint ligamentous issues. Whether in the knee or the foot, it is largely assumed that these problems are more serious than can be helped with soft tissue therapy.

For example, there are many soft-tissue conditions that create medial and lateral knee pain, all of them related to different muscles and ligaments. Participants will learn how to make good judgments as to the source of the pain and how to address it effectively. In the lower leg, conditions affecting the anterior and posterior shin splints, calf pain, and pain syndromes of the feet (such as plantar fasciitis and fasciosis) will be explored. The participant will leave with clear clinical reasoning skills to determine the source of a client’s pain and the technical skills to positively affect that pain.
