When pain occurs with movement, observation and analysis of movement are required. This programme will utilise smartphone video slow motion analysis to identify deviant movements. It will explore a clinical reasoning process that uses individualised working hypotheses, real-time symptom modification of deviant movements using verbal cueing, and the provision of adaptive equipment. This approach aims to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the diagnosis and treatment of movement system impairment syndromes.


This programme aims to strengthen clinical practice and gait analysis skills. You will be introduced to the clinical reasoning process of identifying gait deviations to prevent movement system problems and / or intervene to manage musculoskeletal pain syndromes and movement system impairment syndromes. You will learn to recognise common gait deviations which may be correlated with painful musculoskeletal and neurological syndromes. You will learn about potential interventions, which apply principles of motor learning, to modify pain and alter gait deviations. Finally, you will learn to recognise potential side effects of interventions designed to alter gait deviations.


This programme will cover the following topics:

  1. Gait Deviations Associated With Pain Syndromes in the Pelvis and Knee
  2. Back and Upper Leg Regional Pain and Gait Deviations
  3. Gait Deviations Associated With Pain Syndromes in the Lower Leg and Foot
  4. Lower Leg and Foot Regional Pain and Gait Deviations
  5. Classification and Prioritisation of Multiple Gait Deviations
  6. Motor Learning Principles to Alter Gait Deviations
  7. Interventions for Gait Deviations
  8. Neurological Gait Deviations
  9. Side Effects of Verbal Cueing and Interventions to Alter Gait Deviations
