Introduction

There is a lack of evidence for any of the commonly used evaluation and treatment tools for plantar heel pain (PHP). However, in this course, Bernice Saban uses supporting evidence to discuss a new protocol for the optimal assessment and management of PHP. This course follows on from the literature review series about the risk factors, assessment tools and treatment options for PHP.

Aims

The purpose of this course is to introduce a new protocol to help clinicians assess and treat PHP.

Outline

This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.

I have found this course useful to improve my understanding and assessment and also my management of plantar heel pain syndrome and will have more confidence in managing it as a condition due to this, evidence-based course.

This course was a good reminder that it is always important to think. Fast and slow thinking was a good analogy. In our assessment we need to find the reason and not jump to quick conclusions.

This course by Bernice Saban was unique in many ways and I recommend every clinician and researcher to complete it. Everything was evidence-based. Graphical representation of everything makes understanding easy and fun. Literature reviews are done on everything including risk factors, assessment and management. There is soo much information packed in this course and the clinical implications are clear. It is a game-changer in the treatment of heel pain.
