This course is designed to provide clinicians with an advanced, in-depth framework to effectively analyze and treat gait dysfunction.  The course reviews gait theory and focuses on practical, clinically appropriate approaches for observational and instrumented gait analysis.  The course then advances clinicians’ knowledge in evidence-based functional testing strategies and pathological gait mechanisms and diagnoses before providing a hands-on, patient-centered approach for rehabilitation and plan of care development for clients with impaired motor control, orthopedic injury, amputation, and other gait dysfunctions.  When you complete this online course, you will be armed with diagnostic and treatment strategies that can be customized to your patient’s individual goals and used immediately in the clinic.
