Overview

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.

 

    Course 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.
