Observational assessment and analysis of the gait cycle in walking and running...
The main aim of our Introduction to Gait Analysis course is to present the theoretical underpinnings, technical observation and assessment skills necessary to quickly and accurately identify gait abnormalities. These abnormalities, or biomechanical insufficiencies, may contribute to the current or future injuries of an affected athlete. You will be able to determine the best intervention/s to allow the athlete to return to or continue training at their desired level.
This course forms a compulsory Module towards our Higher Diploma in Sports Therapy, or may be taken as CPD
