Past Participant Feedback
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I appreciated Helene’s evidence based approach and how she incorporated that into her practice. I also appreciated the ample amount of examples of exercises to give patients in each phase of rehab – Daniélle
Thank you for organising a great course – a fantastic idea to run the courses online, the course content was great and Helene very very informative. It was a nice continuation of Helene’s introductory foot and ankle course. Shannon
The foot and ankle course was excellent – very easy to follow and really liked that you also provide the zoom recording of the speaker so you can go back through the material multiple times and not panicking taking notes. No complaints, Helene is an excellent speaker and wonderful lady! – Claire
I was the student that attended this course and would firstly like to extend my gratitude in allowing me to attend. It was a great learning opportunity and I learnt a lot. The Zoom meetings were very well organized and the presentation was well constructed and easy to follow. It created wonderful interaction with other Physio’s and we could learn a lot from each other as well. I am looking forward to further courses. Thanks once again! Michelle
Have never participated in such before but actually found the foot and ankle course both thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Very easy to have discussions and chats; Ann
I really enjoyed Helene’s course. A wealth of information! I came away with a lot of practical tips and up to date protocols. Her rehabilitation ideas are going to be very useful. Also great to have the recordings and notes to be able to refer back to. Caty

This 2-hour workshop will focus on the rehabilitation strategies for patients who have undergone ankle and foot surgery after trauma (fractures, tendon ruptures)
or elective surgery to repair a midfoot collapse, hallux valgus, dislocating Peroneii tendons other interesting conditions.
I will touch on wound care, shoe wear, compression garments, braces, knee scooters and other assistive devices and so forth. I will also discuss some of the practicalities of managing these patients for the long term. I will focus on how to retrain gait in the early days and how to progress to full weight bearing gait (weaning from AFO and crutches).
Most importantly, we will discuss early accelerated rehabilitation (what does it really mean?) and the benefits and potential problems with early rehabilitationm and will also touch on how to deal with chronic post -surgical pain and CRPS.
