Using Foot Function Diagnostically Within The Dimensional Mastery Model
There are correlations between the Evolutionary Layers and specific attributes of foot function.
When hyper or hypoactivation of a specific foot function is observed, one can link the collection of
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.
