Yvonne Dessoffy, physical therapy assistant at Pro Physical Therapy of Columbus, recently attended a course on advanced treatment of the foot and ankle.

The course included a clinical review of anatomy of the lower leg, foot and ankle, followed by time spent on reading X-rays and how to identify different fractures, diseases and other abnormalities of foot and ankle bones. The course reviewed techniques of manual therapy, including joint mobilization and soft tissue treatment.

Dessoffy said the class was a great experience overall and reminded her of how disability in the foot and ankle can affect the kinetic chain all the way up to the spine.
