Treatment of a patient’s abnormal gait can be challenging work. The key to this challenge is not looking immediately on the rigid mechanics of the phases of gait; rather, we must return to the basics of neuromuscular control, center of mass control and proximal stability.
Watch as your treatment of this patient population is transformed by focusing on the 6 determinants of gait with an emphasis on pelvic stability, pelvic mobility, foot and ankle interactions, and reciprocal arm swing. You will learn evidence-based exercises, activities, and treatment strategies that can directly impact not only gait but everyday function, mobility, and safety with our patients.
