Propulsive Phase of Gait – Gait Cycle – Posterior Tibialis
Emily Splichal has a passion for teaching barefoot training. Her goal in this lecture is to teach you how to integrate corrective exercise techniques or strategies to optimize the propulsive phase of gait in your clients, athletes and patients.
“The key to unleashing the greatest amount of power of propulsion is hidden within the posterior tibialis. The optimal function within the posterior tibialis is linked through ankle joint dorsiflexion, the strength of that posterior tibialis muscle itself and a coupled motion through the hip external rotators.”~Emily Splichal
