Foot / Ankle Specialization gives Movement Professionals the knowledge, understanding, wisdom & skills to create the most effective environments for Rehabilitation, Performance, Prevention as it relates to the Foot and Ankle's influence on the body and the body's influence on the Foot and Ankle.

The principles and truths of Applied Function Science® are presented in detail in order to develop powerful and logical strategies. Multiple strategies are developed in order to determine the most effective techniques to facilitate the desired Chain Reactions for the Foot and Ankle and the entire body. Hundreds of techniques are demonstrated, revealing the logical and sequential purpose of each movement.

Accurate and consistent motion and movement nomenclature for the Foot and Ankle and lower extremity are developed in order to effectively communicate the authentic function of the Human Body. The Chain Reaction® Biomechanics of the Foot / Ankle and lower extremity for 3DMAPS® and all forms of functional activities are revealed in detail. Drivers of human movement are demonstrated and categorized in order to determine the most significant techniques and exercises to achieve our purpose-driven goals.

The Power of Tweakology, The Science of Variability, combined with the wisdom of our AFS® Strategies are taught and emphasized in order to empower you to design and manage the most appropriate and effective environments to facilitate the authentic function of the Foot / Ankle and entire body.

Ultimately, this Foot / Ankle Specialization will provide you the foundations, along with the competence and confidence, to continue your lifelong journey to enhancing your knowledge and abilities in order to enhance the lives of others.
