3 DAY WORKSHOP
Gait analysis is increasingly important in the management of patients with neuromuscular and musculoskeletal gait disorders. It is a valuable tool for functional assessment, provides significant information for treatment strategies and acts as a clear means for outcome measures.
Evaluation of gait needs not only to identify the deviation, but also to determine the cause of deviation, compensatory mechanisms and possible effects of the deviation on bones, joints and muscles supporting the affected areas.
The purpose of this workshop is to identify gait deviations in the sagittal, coronal and transverse planes in patients with neuromuscular disorders, understand the link between gait deviations and different joints, segments and planes and to determine the primary impairments contributing to these gait deviations. This will be taught in a clinical setting without a 3D gait laboratory.
