CCEP IV:Advanced Principles of Foot, Gait, and Orthotics (Hearon, Feb 22-23)
Spinal stability depends upon the feet. This hands-on module of the Extremities Practitioner series addresses how the feet control motions into the knees, pelvis and lumbar spine. This course covers the mechanical chain of events in the lower extremities, and how joint subluxations affect posture and gait. Know what foot orthotic options are available, too.
The CCEP series offer practical, objective-based solutions for treating the extremities. It includes 105 hours of instruction in seven live seminars.
The courses are offered through Life West. The CCEP credential is provided by the Council on Extremity Adjusting
Courses will be held on the Life West campus October 2019-May 2020.
See About CCEP for more information.
At the end of this seminar, participants will be better able to:
- know the kinetic chain of motion and how it is impacted by dysfunctions of the foot;
