Structure effective treatment plans and transform client results

FGA L2 is the course you’ve been waiting for.

If you’re a certified FGA Level 1 clinician, we trust that your foot and gait assessment skills are on point. The best clinicians are the ones who can nail down the assessment and dial in on what is most needed for their clients.

But, once you figure out the “why,” you’ve got to know how to guide your clients to their best outcomes. This is where Level 2 comes in–it’s time for treatment! We have designed a 2-day, 16-hour course on how to TREAT the client.

You have figured out the WHY, now figure out the HOW.

This course is for Level 1 Functional Gait Specialist Certified Pros ONLY.

Student to instructor ratio: 20:1
