This seminar will focus on the hips at the advanced level, the feet, and the lower legs. The prevalence of hip pain, which if not resolved can lead to hip replacement surgery, has become a complaint which we see more frequently than in the past. Learning to free the gluteus medius, minimus, and the tensor facia latae will be an important focus in the class. Opening the feet and freeing the four primary soft tissue layers of the sole of the foot will also be taught. The resulting effects on the entire body from competent footwork are often remarkable. We will learn to move seamlessly from the foot to the lower leg, with particular emphasis on the tibialis anterior and its role in flexing the foot at the ankle. There will be plenty of time for questions, and discussion of actual cases participants may have encountered in their practices
