Event description

Description

Foot Mechanics enjoys working with NZ podiatrists who are passionate about making our profession great! We have a passion for being up to date with the latest research, thinking, assessment techniques and approaches to treatment plans. Building on the Dr David Armstrong one day seminar we hosted last year, we are now proud to be bringing Dr Kevin Kirby to our beautiful shores.


We hope that you ‘ll join us on the day to learn from Dr Kevin Kirby.

Dr. Kevin Kirby graduated from the California College of Podiatric Medicine in 1983 and completed his first year surgical residency at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Palo Alto, California. He spent his second post-graduate year doing the Fellowship in Podiatric Biomechanics at CCPM where he also earned his MS degree.


Dr. Kirby has authored or co-authored 27 articles in peer-reviewed journals, has authored or co-authored five book chapters, and has authored four books on foot and lower extremity biomechanics and orthosis therapy, all of which have been translated into Spanish language editions. He has invented the subtalar joint axis palpation technique, the anterior axial radiographic projection, the supination resistance test, the maximum pronation test and the medial heel skive and lateral heel skive orthosis techniques. He has also created and developed the Subtalar Joint Axis Location and Rotational Equilibrium Theory of Foot Function and has co-developed the Subtalar Joint Equilibrium and Tissue Stress Approach to Biomechanical Therapy of the Foot and Lower Extremity. He has lectured internationally on 38 separate occasions and has also lectured extensively throughout the United States.


Dr. Kirby is a member of the editorial advisory board for the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association and is currently an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Biomechanics at the California School of Podiatric Medicine. Dr. Kirby has had a full time podiatric biomechanics and surgical practice in Sacramento, California for 32 years.


Dr Kade Paterson is a Post-doctoral Research Fellow with the Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine at the University of Melbourne, and a Sports Podiatrist with Lakeside Sports Medicine Centre. Kade’s research expertise is in lower limb biomechanics during walking and running, and he has a special interest in the clinical and biomechanical effects of foot-based interventions for musculoskeletal conditions such as foot and knee osteoarthritis. He has published more than 30 peer-review articles in international journals, is a co-author of a biomechanics textbook and has presented at numerous national and international conferences. Kade’s clinical career has spanned 15 years, and he works widely with professional and recreational athletes and clubs from around Australia. He is the Victorian director and national board member for the Australasian Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine.

Schedule is subject to change.

Seminar is worth 12 CPD points and certificate will be provided.
