FootCentric announces therapy course, therapeutic footwear fashion show

Chapel Hill, NC-based education company FootCentric continues its learning events with a two-day course for physical therapists on manual therapy for the foot and ankle. The event is scheduled for April 28-29 at the Comprehensive Physical Therapy Center
 in Chapel Hill and approved for 16 contact hours by the North Carolina Board of Physical Therapy.

The program will cover differential diagnosis of common foot and ankle problems, manual therapy techniques including mobilization, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and general stabilization strategies such as footwear selection, simple inserts, and taping techniques.

This course will also provide an in-depth introduction to prolotherapy, offering information on efficacy, procedures, and indications.

On April 29, attendees can attend a fashion show featuring therapeutic footwear that emphasizes style and function. The event will support FootCentric’s mission to use revenue from continuing education programs to provide devices for people without resources to purchase the orthoses, shoes, braces, or other items critical to foot health.
