Instructor: Dr. Adam Klotzek
Gait is an often-overlooked aspect of human function. This is unfortunate as gait itself is critical to human locomotion, stability and performance. Gait disturbances are extremely common in society and there is a great need for individuals who are trained to quickly evaluate and quickly prescribe treatments to correct for these disturbances. Thus, this seminar is designed to accomplish just that. Quick, effective methods to assess gait abnormalities and the simple applications to correct for them. You will learn about the most common functional gait disturbances, the structural and postural disturbances that they are associated with and then how to apply quick effective treatments to correct them. Dress is casual as this module is designed to have a high degree of hands on practicums that will ensure each learner attains a competency in the evaluation and treatment applications presented.

In this seminar, we will focus on the physiological basis of gait and the influences of central brain structures. We will also focus on the different gait patterns commonly seen in clinical practice and their neurophysiological basis.
The Benefit to You.
Understanding the Neurological substrates involved in human gait is the vital first step in being able to effectively diagnose and treat gait disorders. There is fast becoming a large body of research that is showing a positive correlate between gait and posture abnormalities and overall human health. Understanding this will give you an advantage over other practitioners by having an extra tool in your tool box to better treat individual health and performance issues. This will become even more apparent for you as you begin to see relationships in the human form that before were perplexing. Because of your improved results you will be able to successfully treat more difficult patients that will lead to the expansion of your patient base and better financial practice metrics.
