Foot Injuries and Food Chain Injuries


The illustration seen here is the result of a brainstorm, more like brain hurricane, of a few therapists and coaches with injury cascades and branches. The last five years I am seeing a lot complex injuries from foot dysfunction that is usually minor. When a GPP or SPP is completed, coaches feel confident but at near PR levels new or similar injuries resurface. To many progressive medical people foot mechanics are emphasized because when the foot hits the ground, things start getting complicated and only a handful of Physical Therapists understand speed and agility with the foot. After three days in Tampa and working with two athletes and another via Skype overseas, complicated injuries are often the result of foot dysfunction. When I attended the Level III sprints presentation, Dan Pfaff illustrated this concept with his wonderful word choice. Kebba Tolbert has a very nice presentation on therapy considerations that can be found here.
