MPI Gait Analysis – Assessment and Treatment
For centuries, the art of Gait Analysis has been attempted and used by many clinicians in the healthcare professions. Some pitfalls include the subjectivity of the analysis and confusion as to what is clinically pertinent. When done in a systematic manner, information can be gleaned from a patient’s gait that will lead to treatment ideas, or more specific functional tests. Perhaps clinicians have made this too difficult in the past, and lost sight of the big picture. Manual palpation and procedures are important, but we also must assess how the patient is moving in their sport and in daily activities. This course will feature multiple speakers on various aspects of gait analysis and conservative treatment.
The objective for this weekend course is to update the clinician on:
- Pertinent biomechanics of the lower extremity
- How these biomechanics apply to gait
- How to functionally assess for pronation and supination
- How to manually assess for pronation and supination with associated adjustments
- Adjusting and palpation considerations for the hip and pelvis
- Clinical orthopedics
- When to use orthotics
- What shoes to recommend for your patients with different foot types
