VOLUNTEER FIT FEET CLINICAL DIRECTOR Idaho

January 1, 2020 Thru December 31, 2020
 

Healthy Athletes Clinical Director

 

Special Olympics Fit Feet offers 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. Often, these individuals are not fitted with the best shoes and socks for their particular sport. During Fit Feet events, volunteer foot healthcare specialists work with athletes to evaluate problems of the feet, ankles and lower extremity biomechanics.

Special Olympics Idaho is looking for a Fit Feet Clinical Director to host 1-2 screening events per year. Training provided by Special Olympics International. For more information, please visit https://resources.specialolympics.org/health/fit-feet or contact allison@idso.org.
