Benefits of Attending the Firefly MSK workshop

  • Learn vital MSK tests (non-weight bearing, weight bearing, functional)
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how orthoses work (alignment vs force, theories, mechanics)
  • Introduction to clinical gait analysis (movement patterns, injuries associated)
  • Gain a greater understanding of custom-made foot orthoses role in rehabilitation and treatment process.
  • Acquire 6 CPD points [accredited from the RCPS Glasgow]

The next Firefly MSK Workshop takes place on March 2nd in central London – this event is fully enrolled. Following the success of the previous Firefly Workshop, places at the March event are filling quickly.

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of musculoskeletal podiatry enabling you to treat a wider range of patients and achieve better patient outcomes on returning to your clinic.

The course will cover current theories, diagnostic tests, prescription writing and clinical gait analysis – giving you the confidence and ability to treat more complex foot and ankle pathologies.

Be confident in prescribing orthoses

The prescription writing process can seem daunting – at Firefly’s workshop in March, we will simplify the process, working from diagnosis to prescription.

Learn from Firefly’s Martin Mc Geough who will give you his clinical gold honed from 20 years of clinical excellence in the field of orthotic therapy.

LEARN SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE MSK ASSESSMENTS

Knowing how to implement and interpret MSK assessments is a key skill set for any leading podiatrist. Once you learn these simple but highly effective, evidence-based MSK assessments you can use them when you return to your clinic. These test will allow you to assess how much force is applied to certain structures in the foot and ultimately how best to treat the patient.

SMALL CLASS SIZE

To ensure you get the most from the workshop and to maximise your time, places on the workshop will be limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The workshop is highly practical with lots of hands-on learning so small class sizes are required.

Workshop Venue

The Workshop will take place at the Training Room Hire Company, 70 -72 Clifton Street, London EC2A 4HB. The venue location is centrally located between 5 and 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street Station, but also the Old Street, Shoreditch High Street and Moorgate stations.

The Firefly MSK Workshop is enormously relevant to both the MSK specialist podiatrists and non-specialist.

Cathy DavisPodiatrist, London

At times I can find musculoskeletal podiatry challenging but having attended the Firefly MSK Workshop it simplified MSK and I now feel much more confident conducting biomechanical assessments and making appropriate patient management plans.
