In this series we are sharing with you our approach to working with older clients that present with foot and ankle issues.

In particular, I share with you a simple assessment, a release strategy to help your clients align and control their foot and ankle complex, and how to train their foot and ankle in a functional exercise pattern.

I also shared with you why we are very strategic about how and with whom we use Janda’s ‘short foot’ pattern.

I discussed how training the short foot pattern can actually contribute to ankle and foot issues...

…especially in your older clients that present with stiffness and rigidity in their feet.

To finish up the series,  I’m covering a functional exercise progression to integrate the foot tripod into a pattern that can help your older clients improve their balance as well as alignment and control of the lower extremity.
