Bio Basics is aimed at those practitioners who are new to foot biomechanics or looking to refresh their skills. During this one day course podiatrist Damian Murray will focus on the 10 most common causes of musculoskeletal foot pain, how to accurately diagnose them, and most importantly... how to treat them.
Course numbers are kept to a maximum of 10 so that every delegate has the chance to put the theory into practice and learn how to modify and prescribe simple orthoses.
