Course Description: One of the primary goals of many physical therapists is the restoration of mobility. A thorough, accurate clinical assessment of the movement problem is a necessary, but challenging, first step before establishing a treatment plan and designing an effective intervention.

This in-person half-day event will review options for systematically analyzing gait and locomotion, in individuals with and without neurologic impairments. Different frameworks for assessment will be introduced and discussed. The focus of the content will be on clinical decisions regarding gait assessment and functional mobility. Participants will have the opportunity to practice with the use of video examples. Pros and cons of different means of analysis will be discussed, including how the assessment may be used to guide treatment interventions.

Course level: Intermediate

Target Audience:  Physical Therapists and Physical Therapy Assistants 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the phases of normal gait and critical function of each phase.
  • Identify ( 3) common gait deviations seen in traditional observational gait analysis. 
  • Describe (3) frameworks for analyzing gait, including identification of one particular strength for each.
  • Analyze video examples of movement and discuss observed deficits.
