Your foot hurts. It must be plantar fasciitis, right? You Google the term and yep, It says that your heel pain is plantar fasciitis! Scrunch a towel and pick marbles up with your toes and it will heal. Will it?
Last time you were out on the trails you rolled your ankle. It’s okay, it’s just a “simple ankle sprain.” But, is there such a thing?
How are those 10 year old orthotics working out for you? Are you still switching them in and out of all your shoes? Why did you get them in the first place? Are they even necessary? If your neck gets injured, would you still wear a neck brace years later? Learn which conditions necessitate wearing an orthotic and which don’t.
What if you could learn a simple system to measure where your mobility and stability is and treat yourself so injuries don’t creep up on you out of nowhere? Stop playing Whack-a-Mole.
Welcome to the 21st Century! Welcome to an informed way of living.
I’m putting the final touches on Topic #1 of a new 4-part education series for the general public at Prime you’re not going to want to miss.
What is it?
After 22 years of assessing human movement and treating and rehabilitating injuries, Kerry has surmised that injury prevention and optimal movement can be simplified into 2 key concepts, in 4 body regions. Optimal mobility and dynamic stability should be assessed and achieved through simple daily focus. “We have over-complicated self-care, leaving people feeling self-defeated before they have begun. I have distilled the essence of movement and injury prevention, here. It’s supposed to be simple. Measure it, correct it, stabilize it, so you can use it.” – Kerry Gustafson
Sign up now for the first presentation of our 4 part series for the general public, where you’ll learn foot and ankle anatomy, common conditions of the foot, how to test for mobility dysfunctions and weakness and know what you can do to improve them, and when to come see us.
