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 are excited to learn about:
- Tissue Stress Theory
- Running Biomechanics and Current Controversies in Running
- Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome:
- Diagnosis, Etiology and Treatment plus more..
and have practical workshops on:
- New Tests for the Modern Podiatrist & Practical Demonstration of Subtalar Joint Axis Location Technique
- Practical Walking and Running Gait Examination Techniques for Clinical Practice
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.
