Why Do My Feet Still Hurt?: Foot Pain
From The Top-Down
Shaun Lapenskie, M.Manip.PT (Aus.), B.Sc.PT,
FCAMPT, CAFCI
Chronic foot pain can be related to factors quite apart
from the foot, and ongoing pain can transition from
being merely a symptom indicative of an underlying
problem to being a significant barrier to recovery.
Factors that perpetuate pain can vary widely between
individuals. Longstanding pain input into the central
nervous system can result in increased sensitivity in
peripheral nerve, articular and soft tissue structures.
Pain causes muscle firing patterns to change in the
lower extremity, lumbar spine and pelvic region; there
is often a corresponding loss of proprioception. Finally,
adverse patient beliefs and attitudes about their pain
can result in an exaggerated emotional response to
symptoms and have a deleterious effect on recovery.
This talk will describe the physiology and psychology
of chronic pain, pain’s effects on muscle function
and proprioception in both the lumbopelvic region
and lower extremity, and give pedorthists a wider
understanding of the factors that affect their success
in treating foot pain.
10:45 AM - 12:00 PM
Keynote Speaker
Shoes and Orthotics – Aligning the
Skeleton
Benno Nigg, Dr.sc.nat., Dr.h.c.
Surprising Facts
1. Orthotics and “supporting shoes” are often
administered to “align the skeleton”. However,
“skeletal alignment” during running is inconsistent,
typically small and subject specific. We propose
that each joint has a preferred movement path for a
given movement task.
2. Subjects react inconsistently to orthotic and/or shoe
interventions. Therefore, it is difficult to prepare the
“correct” intervention/orthotic.
3. There is no consistency in the way custom made
orthotics are made and specific orthotics prepared
by specialists are often quite different.
Do orthotics and/or shoes have an effect?
Looking at those surprising facts one may conclude
that orthotics or special shoes don’t work at all.
However, this conclusion would not be correct. Based
on experimental evidence we know that orthotics
work in many cases. Inserts typically show a clear
effect on subjective comfort and when using the most
comfortable insert, injury frequency is lowered. Thus,
inserts/orthotics produce changes. However, we don’t

know which changes they produce and why they
produce these changes.
Several studies have shown that orthotics affect
• Muscle activity,
• Point of application of the ground reaction force and
• Resultant joint moments.
• Comfort,
• Performance and/or
• Injuries.
One of the typical results of all these studies is that
the results are “subject specific”. It seems that there
are several groups of people that react in a typical way
to specific shoe/orthotic interventions. We call these
groups “functional groups” and suggest that such
functional groups require different and specific shoe/
orthotic solutions.

Clinical Assessment of Spinal and Lower
Extremity Alignment, Strength and

Shaun Lapenskie, M.Manip.PT (Aus.), B.Sc.PT,
FCAMPT, CAFCI
Chronic foot pain can be perpetuated by deficiencies
in proximal muscle firing patterns, flexibility and
proprioception. While these issues may not be easily
remedied by the pedorthist, the ability to identify them
in individual patients can be helpful in recognizing the
need for a multi-disciplinary approach to symptom
management.
This hands-on session will demonstrate methods for
assessing balance, weight-bearing alignment and
the strength/flexibility of key muscle groups in the
lumbopelvic region and lower extremity. It will also
cover some basic remedial exercises to address any
identified deficits.

Pathology-Specific Orthoses: EvidenceBased vs. Myths and Misconceptions
An Integrated Approach for Diabetic Foot
Assessment and Footwear Prescription
Paul Scherer, DPM
Nachiappan Chockalingam, BEng., MSc, PhD,
CEng, CSci.
For years, the practice of orthotic therapy was based
only on anecdotal and pseudoscientific evidence.
Unfortunately, this still continues today. This lecture
will take an evidence-based pathology-specific
approach to dispel misconceptions that lead to
unsuccessful outcomes. Peer-reviewed studies
related to functional positional control in the treatment
of mechanically-induced foot pathologies will be
highlighted, providing attendees with an evidencebased approach to orthotic therapy that they can
readily apply for improved outcomes.

Role of Forces Rather than Motion and
Posture in Foot Orthotic Prescribing
Craig Payne, DPM
Sponsored by Paris Orthotics
More evidence is accumulating
raising questions about the role of posture or
alignment of the foot being problematic with more
emphasis being placed on forces going through the
tissues. This needs a change in thinking regarding
prescribing foot orthoses to deal with those forces,
rather than focus on alignment or posture of the foot.

new product development. The products will include
a new generation of integrated smart /multi material
midsoles and/or orthoses for diabetic footwear.
Properties of the materials will be optimised with a
view to minimise/ redistribute the pressure and hence
the stress on the soft tissue in the critical plantar areas
of the foot. Whilst significantly affecting the course of
the disease, the products will aim to reduce the risk of
limb loss in patients with diabetes, the most frequent
cause of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations.

What Have We Learnt About Foot
Orthotics in the 'Wash Up' of the
Barefoot/Minimalist Running Fad?
Craig Payne, DPM
During the trend towards barefoot or minimalist
running many runners where discarding foot orthotics
and not having problems. Others were having more
problems. Social media influences are now influencing
runners decisions when it comes to foot orthoses.
More has been learnt in recent tomes about the
longer term use of foot orthoses and role of tissue
vulnerability and adaptability to loads. This has started
to lead to a rethink of the role of foot orthoses for the
management of overuse injury in runners.

Effective Use of Technologies in
Prescription Footwear and Orthoses
Nachiappan Chockalingam, BEng., MSc, PhD,
CEng, CSci.
Amongst various technologies that could help in
effective clinical intervention, pressure measurement
systems are commonly used in a variety of settings,
providing information that will help with patient
assessment and the design of orthotic intervention and
prescription footwear. Furthermore, they play a crucial
role in the evaluation of treatment outcomes in various
clinical conditions. This workshop, whilst outlining
16 2014 PAC Syposium
the differences in technology and the usefulness of
the plantar pressure data, will highlight the potential
issues relating to the variability in the data collection
procedures and the type of system being employed.
Various pressure and related temporal parameters that
could be measured using various types of pressure
mapping systems will be discussed with a view to
emphasise its ease of use in daily clinical practice.
This workshop will also highlight and discuss the
applicability of pressure measurement beyond the
traditional approaches with a focus on balance,
posture and asymmetry. Whilst drawing attention to
the measurement issues in age and disease related
changes, this session will relate pressure assessment
to general gait analysis. To conclude, the facilitators
will pose questions for the future of plantar pressure
assessment emphasising the need not only for the
continual monitoring of plantar pressure but also for
use of pressure data in conjunction with data from
other technologies.
(the session will include a live demonstration of plantar
pressure assessment systems from Tekscan Inc.)

Shaun’s treatment approach focuses heavily on patient
education and giving them the tools to help themselves.
Hands-on manual therapy, specifically-tailored active

broad-based method to patient management allows
him to re-train altered movement patterns, alleviate
muscle imbalances as well address the psychosocial
components of chronic pain.

Recorded sessions keep you up-to-date on current
industry trends and make great training tools for you
and your colleagues. Don’t let your learning end when
the Symposium does. Continue your professional
development year-round with session recordings
