Additional therapy and new skills in the podiatry.

The podiatry profession is evolving very fast and podiatrists are constantly searching for new additional therapies to enlarge their professional scope of practice.

This interactive conference will add new skills and additional therapies to your scope of practice including: pro’s and contras of shockwave therapy, the use of diagnostic imaging ultrasound, dry needling possibilities (verrucae, trigger points), new developments in ankle brachial index and toe pressure index, evolution and accessibility of 3D printing & CADCAM systems within your practice.

International experts will tease you with these additional therapies and new skills in relation to lower limb disorders as well as higher up the kinetic chain. Furthermore, advanced skills in shoe development and fitting will be widely addressed.

The keynote speaker Mr. Clifton Bradeley, owner SUB-4 (UK) has an exceptional view on assessment tools for examination and treatment of sportspeople. With his company SUB-4 he developed several examination instruments which can be used in static and dynamic exams.
