Workshop for Health/Exercise professionals interested in developing observational skills, a greater understanding of gait and pathological gait patterns from an Exercise Science and Osteopathic perspective
Sport and Health/Exercise professionals are increasingly working in professional exercise rehabilitation environments. Within the field of rehabilitation, (neurological, neuromuscular trauma) observational gait analysis and gait re-education requires a knowledge and understanding of 'Normal gait patterns', the ability to analyse pathalogical gait patterns and how to re-educate the individual learning to walk again.
Observational skills are vital on a day to day basis and where there are no facilities to analyse gait through clinical methods.
This workshop aims to assist the delegates to identify:
Normal gait - terminology used in gait analysis, gait cycle, timing, normal joint ranges of motion, muscles acting about the hip. knee and ankle
Biomechanical considerations of the spine during gait and its relationship with gait
Pathological gait patterns: their affect on a local and global level.
Biomechanical considerations of pathological gait from an Osteopathic viewpoint
Assessment tools: basic visual and manual assessment.
Practical session: video analysis of abnormal gait patterns of individuals affected by neurological trauma.
Observational gait analysis - methods of observation from Exercise Science and Osteopathic perspectives
The workshop will be delivered by
