    Overview

    Functional Integrated Dry Needling for Foot and Ankle Rehabilitation - AIFIDN

    Foot and Ankle are the foundation of our body and they assist us in some of the most basic functions of living. Foot & Ankle dysfunctions could be the most neglected & underrated aspects of musculoskeletal injuries & sports performance. Recent research work suggests that muscles, ligaments, tendons & fascia form the continuum key to the foot for bipedal walking & running.

    In this 2-day course, we are addressing the importance of the feet, which is often considered to be the distal end of the fascial chain.

    Due to faulty movements & improper modern day footwear there is a decrease in strength and size of the ankle & foot muscles, which remain semi-dormant that can lead to a negative impact on muscle function throughout lower limb, hips, core, thoracic & cervical spinal musculature. The chronic adhesive bands formed in the musculature due to foot and ankle dysfunctions can be successfully engaged by FIDN process.

    The understanding that improper or aggravated forces on the foot & ankle due to faulty movements offered assisted by improper fascial chain can lead to further dysfunctions. During the Gait cycle foot and ankle plays a major role in maintaining kinetic chain which can get disturbed due to associated dysfunctions and FIDN addresses exactly same. The structural changes in the feet over a period of time are often observed due to changes in the biomechanical movement pattern, which causes dysfunction in the fascial, and kinetic change is successfully explained in this course.
