Kinematics and Gait Analysis
About the Event
The next Sports Chiro Australia (SCA) webinar, titled Kinematics and Gait Analysis in Injury Assessment of the Lower Extremity will be held Wednesday 24 June 2020 and presented by Dr Christine Foss.
This course will take the attendee on a quest to find the causative agent in injury and determining factors in injury prediction. We will look at the kinematics of motion and how faults in normal gait and motion patterns relay into a chain of events that predispose athletes to injury.
Evaluation of movement faults and the institution of corrections and treatment regimes to rehabilitate the athlete will also be explored. The return to sport execution will be built and relayed in a strategic plan to allow an understanding of the components of optimal performance in a care plan.
- Attendees will gain knowledge of injury prediction though the kinematics of movement of the lower extremity;
- This lecture will provide the attendees with background knowledge and skills to evaluate gait as it relates to injury and movement faults;
- This course will review normal and abnormal movement patterns of the lower extremity for a variety of etiologies;
- The attendees will learn to put together the patient’s functional limitations and match them with patterns that provide injury prevention and optimal performance.
