Osteopathic Techniques of the Foot and Ankle for Podiatrists

Osteopathic Techniques for the Foot and Ankle for Podiatrists

These workshops will be conducted by Joel Bell, Osteopath. Joel has taught these techniques to Podiatrists and Postgraduate Physiotherapists in Europe for the recent past. Joel has now returned home and set up his Osteopathic practice in Perth. He is very keen to continue passing on his skills to Podiatrists and has presented this workshop already in Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Hobart.

The aim of the 2 day workshop is to introduce the participants to a range of osteopathic manual techniques which are available and appropriate for clinical use by podiatrists as an adjunct to existing clinical skills.

The workshop will be practical in nature with a dual intention:

a) Achieving competency of some skills ready for immediate utilization in the clinic.

b) Providing exposure to more advanced skills which can lead to a special set of skills above and beyond normal podiatric modalities.

The workshop will provide benefit to all podiatrists. These types of techniques have a broad group of indications for diverse types and ages of patients and fit clearly into the skill set that podiatrists should be capable of providing as part of their total foot care service.
