Functional Perspectives on a game maker in gait...

The 1st MTP

Functional Anatomy, Trigger Points and More...

Good Morning

 

I just released a new video excerpted from a recent Level 2 TPDN course. It's about one of my favorite articulations, the 1st MTP. One of the most important and most distal joints involved with the gait cycle whose dysfunction leads to a constellation of problems north in the kinetic chain.

 

Enjoy . . .
