The human body is an amazing machine that typically finds a way to make mobility happen. However, this sometimes results in less than optimal movement patterns. The rehabilitation professional's role is to guide patients through a plan of care to improve and/or correct movement dysfunction, ultimately resulting in an ideal movement for that unique individual. There are often two schools of thought in physiotherapy: neurological and musculoskeletal clinical paradigms. This course, the eighth of nine in the Gait Analysis and Training Programme, attempts to bridge the gap between these two paradigms and provide a basic introduction to neurological gait from the point of view of an orthopaedic/musculoskeletal therapist. It will provide an overview of the movement system classification, discuss common neurological gait deviations and provide examples of clinically applicable interventions.
This course aims to strengthen your clinical competency in the treatment of neurological gait deviations.
