I’ve had a few Calf/ Ankle/ Foot issues over the year, some from running and one from trauma.  The largest ankle tendonitis I’ve ever had was from dropping glass on my inner ankle. The glass incident left me unable to put weight on my ankle for almost a month!

As I’ve come to find out, many people listening to the podcast and digging through my articles have been struggling with chronic ankle tendonitis, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, old ankle sprains and more. The podcast interview I did with Dr. Tom Michaud DC is a bit too technical for lay public so this is my attempt to clean up some verbiage.

To better assist everyone through their biggest question…. “Why does my ankle hurt and when will it get better?” I’ve created a free course and paid manual (not live just yet) on everything I do in my clinic to assist others in treating and rehabbing ankles and feet.

Healthcare professionals, I’ve included some clinical reasoning that may assist you in your treatment of Calf/ Ankle/ Foot issues. I don’t claim to know everything and I’m not the smartest person I’ve ever met, but I feel this podcast and course will provide huge value to those who test the system I’ve laid out.

Here’s a few of the concepts I go over in this podcast ( elaborated on extensively in the eCourse):

  • The 3-Step Process to Calf/ Ankle/ Foot Recovery
  • “MAP a Load” Rehab System
  • The Hierarchy of Human Motion
  • Four General Theories Of How To Guide Your Ankle/ Foot Treatment
  • 7 Specific Theories I Use During Clinical Reasoning to Develop a Corrective Exercise Program

In case you’re wondering why I say “Calf/ Ankle/ Foot” than a specific diagnosis, it’s because the region works together and rehab for one condition may be very similar to what we do for another… it all comes down the what the person, as an individual, responds to.

Some of the types of conditions this podcast covers are:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Achilles Tendonosis
  • Nerve Referred Ankle/ Foot Pain
  • Peroneal Tendonitis
  • Neuromas
  • Metatarsal Stress Fracture
  • Heel Pain
