'Functional Feet'  TBC

 Contact Julie for more information or book directly on the website

Everything happens from the feet up!

A must for all sports enthusiasts and anyone who has ever suffered with foot or lower limb problems.

The more I learn, the more strongly I feel we must pay more attention to our feet. We squash them into ill-fitting shoes, stand for long periods of time and walk on cement pathways. Our feet are highly sensory, telling us where and how to step, but they also set up the balance of the pelvis and spine. If we stop and pay attention, we may improve back issues, hip and knee pain, and release our necks.

A practical session looking at correct alignment of the foot and lower limb, incorporating take away exercises to restore healthy foot function, improve strength, articulation and proprioception in the feet.

Learn the most common injuries and how to avoid them. Some of the injuries we will be covering: Plantar fasciitis, dropped arches, mortons neuroma, bunions, weak ankles, ankle sprains and strains.

Worksheets will be provided but please bring a pen and paper. Balls, therabands and other small props will be used in the workshop and will be available to buy at the end.

Cost: £30
