Description

A deviance to gait can have significant impact on a patient’s independence.  They’re no longer able to do the things they love and worse – are at higher risk for falls that can lead to significant hospitalization.

Analyzing human gait can be a complex process, but it doesn’t have to be intimidating.

We will explore why you see what you see during gait - and how you can improve function for long-term success. You’ll have thought provoking discussions and labs during this seminar that will teach you the ins and outs of real-time gait analysis and gait deviation.  And best of all – you won’t need expensive equipment to get life changing results!

Drawing on decades of experience, Dr. Howell will provide you the skills and techniques you need to:

  • Quickly identify and correct gait dysfunction
  • Reduce fall risk
  • Enable patients to run/walk farther and faster, injury free
  • Decrease use of adaptive equipment

You will learn interventions that are both fun and rewarding that will ultimately improve the lives of your patients.

Walk away with advanced gait techniques that can be implemented immediately within your practice.

  2. Demonstrate techniques which can improve the validity and reliability of gait analysis and slow-motion video analysis 
  3. Categorize 15 common qualitative gait deviations which may be correlated with painful musculoskeletal syndromes.  
  4. Given the location of pain and/or tissue diagnosis, evaluate potential gait deviations for each region and/or tissue diagnosis you might expect the client to demonstrate. 
  5. Apply a symptom modification approach by stating a working hypothesis for gait deviations using good verbal cues, wearable feedback devices, adaptive equipment, shoes/shoe inserts, and/or controlling the environment 
  6. Determine appropriate verbal cues designed to alter the subject’s gait deviation based upon the specific deviation.    
  7. Differentiate potential side effects, unintended consequences of interventions for identified gait deviations
