Gait Training-An Evidence Based Course Combining Manual Therapy, Exercise and Functional Activities – North American Seminars Inc.

August 13, 2016 - August 14, 2016

$425

This intermediate level 2-day course provides an orthopedic perspective in the evaluation and treatment of the neurologically involved lower extremity with the use of evidence based practice. This course will provide studies that support common theories and treatments involved with the treatment of the lower extremity with a focus on function and gait. The concepts and principles demonstrated in this course enhance both the clinician’s knowledge base and hands-on skills. Clinicians will learn to not only identify impairments in alignment, but prioritize which impairment is affecting function. They will analyze movement patterns specifically with gait, determine musculoskeletal dysfunctions (including muscle imbalances) and develop a working therapy diagnosis with appropriate therapeutic intervention. Course instruction is enhanced by extensive group interaction and hands-on practice of the evaluation procedures (with case studies). Treatment approaches are aimed at soft tissue mobilization, flexibility activities, strengthening exercises and proprioceptive activities that will improve gait and mobility with patients. Break out sessions will include video analysis of actual patients to allow the clinician to systematically diagnosis patient dysfunction and develop a progressive functional treatment plan. The techniques learned can be applied to a multitude of pathologies in both the neurologic and orthopedic realm (including, but not exclusive to: CVA, SCI, TBI, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, CP, deconditioning, hip pathologies, arthritis, etc). This course assists the clinician in becoming more efficient with making the correct therapy diagnosis, documenting, analyzing, communicating and progressing the patient to a more functional level.
