For the last several years Marilyn and myself have been fortunate enough to be invited by Dr. Chris MacClean and Paris Orthotics to join them for their annual educational seminar hosted here in Oakville, Ontario. Last night was one such event and as per usual Chris gave his enlightening and thought provoking perspective as a expert in human biomechanics and research. Sometimes as clinical specialists, it is hard to step back and examine what we do in the same purely scientific method that such experts are forced to do. Their observations are vital to enable us to fine tune what we do in the clinical setting and how we can best direct our custom orthotic manufacturer to enhance the benefit to our patients.
We are fortunate enough to have a group practice where regularly we can consult with each other in complicated and challanging cases. For those without such a luxury it is vital to have have a partnership with an orthotic laboratory that has on staff, individuals like Dr. MacClean who can act as that necessary source of council.
Once again my thanks to Paris Orthotics and to Dr. MacClean, and congratulations for having the vision and desire to bring presentations like this to us practitioners in the comunity.
