Gait deviations are often related to the development of and / or associated with musculoskeletal pain syndromes. This course, the first of nine in the Gait Analysis and Training Programme, introduces the concepts of walking speed and ground force reaction and explains their relevance to gait dysfunction. It also details important gait deviations associated with pain syndromes of the knee and pelvis. It compares expected movement patterns with deviant patterns, highlights gait features of the deviant movement, and describes commonly associated pain syndromes.


This course aims to enrich the learner's understanding of important gait deviations associated with pain syndromes of the knee and pelvis.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
