Meeting of Fit Feet with Kel Sherkin, DPM. Special Olympics Fit Feet offers podiatric screenings to evaluate ankles, feet, lower extremity biomechanics, and proper shoe and sock gear to participating athletes. Fit Feet helps Special Olympics athletes step lively on the playing field, and in everyday life. Many athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain, or deformities that impair their performance. In fact, up to 50 percent of Special Olympics athletes experience one or more preventable or treatable foot conditions that can affect their sports participation.
The FIP WORLD CONGRESS OF PODIATRY is held every three years and attracts participants from around the world, including podiatrists in private practice, the public sector, the educational stream and students. OPMA Members are joining their Canadian and global foot health expert colleagues in Montreal.
