Treatment & Exploration of Gait for Physiotherapists

7th – 8th January 2021

Venue: London Road Community Hospital, Derby     Ref. 2789

Lecturer: Erica Malcolm, MCSP

Consultant To and Founder of Physio Where You Are             

Specialist Mobile Neurological Therapy Team

 

This 1.5 day course is looking at gait analysis in the normal adult and exploring how inefficiencies/ compensatory strategies will impact on the gait pattern.

 

The course will analyse gait through observation and handling (as in the norm in the clinical setting).  It is aimed at the qualified therapist working with adults with acquired neurological damage and will be best suited to those who have a working knowledge of assessment of ‘normals’ and are currently, or have recently, worked in neurology.

 

AIMS

  • To provide a structure for gait analysis in the neurological patient in community and/or hospital settings.
  • To develop a clinical reasoning process to analyse which body part to 'begin with' in treatment of gait.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

   By the end of the course the participant should be able to:

  • Briefly assess gait in the clinical setting.
  • Give clinical reasons for which aspects of gait should be treated and why.
  • Develop a treatment strategy to address an aspect of gait.

 

SUGGESTED PRE COURSE READING

  • Review anatomy of lower limbs.
  • Review any gait analysis text of choice.

 

CPD Certificate of attendance will be awarded: 9 hours

 

Fee: £220 (Including refreshments)

Limited funded places may be available for AHP’s & Nurses working for the NHS within the East Midlands
