Chronic and painful gait dysfunction can be challenging to manage with traditional physiotherapy interventions, often leading to unsatisfactory patient outcomes and unwanted lingering side effects. These patients can feel neglected by the medical system when traditional therapy fails and they are not appropriate surgical candidates. Dr. Damien Howell will present case reports of a patient with chronic osteoarthritic knee pain and a patient with chronic hip pain. He will cover 2D gait assessment and novel treatment options for this complex patient population to help bring about lasting changes in their functional ability and pain.


This webinar aims to provide an overview of gait assessment approaches and treatment interventions that can enhance a clinician’s existing toolkit for managing painful dysfunctional gait.


This webinar recording consists of a 1-hour video and additional resources.
