Course Description

  • Intra-osseous restrictions via embryologic, traumatic and stress lines of force of lower extremities

  • Fibula spirals will be explored inter- and intra-osseously in dynamic energy storage and shock absorption in the walk cycle

  • The concept of lemniscate in relation to walking cycle mechanics and treatment

  • Select anatomical structures will be built three-dimensionally out of clay and other materials to solidify and anchor the principles and relationships

  • Lauren Berry’s concept of tissue misplacement and how it relates to Ida Rolf’s statement of, “Put it in place and call for movement”

  • A detailed look at Knee/Ankle/Fibula mechanics

  • Interosseous membrane details
    -Meniscus treatment

This class is essential to the deeper understanding of the anatomy of these joints. Building both of the joints out of clay is a real eye-opener to how the mechanics of the joints relate to the entire body. This class is essential to understanding the details of both of these joints. You will become proficient at seeing and feeling the different compensation patterns in the walking cycle, and grow more adept at treating these and restoring normal biomechanics. Ron does a great job of weaving his knowledge of embryology into this class, helping students to see how different therapies overlap, and teaching students to assess and treat at the micro and macro levels.
