Gait Theory and Practice Course


  • Pivot Physical Therapy 751 J Clyde Morris Boulevard Newport News, VA, 23601 United States (map)

The Gait Theory and Practice course provides clinicians with an advanced, in-depth framework to effectively analyze and treat gait dysfunction.  The course will review gait theory and focus on practical, clinically appropriate approaches for observational and instrumented gait analysis.  Clinicians will advance their knowledge in evidence-based functional testing strategies and pathological gait mechanisms and diagnoses.  The course will provide a hands-on, patient-centered approach for rehabilitation and plan of care development for clients with amputation, impaired motor control, and other gait dysfunctions through video and real patient interaction.  This course will follow a progression of Mission Gait’s ideal practice principles and reinforce them through the weekend course with significant hands-on lab experience providing the clinician with skills to be used immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.  

This course is co-hosted by the Tidewater Chapter of the Virginia Physical Therapy Association.
