Using Foot Function Diagnostically

Using Foot Function Diagnostically Within The Dimensional Mastery Model


There are correlations between the Evolutionary Layers and specific attributes of foot function.
EVOLUTIONARY LAYERS
FOOT FUNCTION
When hyper or hypoactivation of a specific foot function is observed, one can link the collection of
TRAINING PROTOCOLS
associated with that developmental layer using the correlations listed below:


Assessment of foot functionality can be made visually by observing a person’s stance and gait, or by looking at the wear pattern on the soles of their shoes.
KNEE TRACKING
HIGH/LOW ARCHES
EVERSION/INVERSION OF STANCE AND GAIT.

STANCE (POSTURAL) ISSUES
Does the person slouch or stand with head forward?

LINKED TO:
ANIMAL LAYER and ALL LIVING THINGS LAYER (Development of the Structural Core)

By Priority:

2: ALL LIVING THINGS LEGACY TRAINING PROTOCOLS

also to:
PRIMATE LAYER (Application of the Core as the foundation for tool use).

GAIT ISSUES
Everted on “knocked Knee” gait.
