Foot Mobilisation Course Testimonials

Absolutely excellent! Well worth the travel from Dubai!….Thank you.

Great course. Creates a new way of thinking in my approach to treating foot pathologies.

Ian is very easy to understand, will find this useful in clinical practice.

Ian’s use of language and approachability made this course an excellent learning experience
and encouraged inclusivity of learning regardless of you level within the profession.

Really enjoyed the course. Ian is extremely approachable and patient with his teaching. I would
highly recommend the course and look forward to attending the other courses too.

Very well structured course at sensible pace with plenty of opportunity to practice and clarify

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Feel it will have a significant relevance to clinic practice. Look forward to
doing the ankle course.

This will be the missing link in treating my patients appropriately. On a personal level – I am able
to evert my calcaneum and dorsiflex my 1st MTPJ for the first time in 15 years following an ATFL
