Topics included:

  • Review torsions and common anatomical abnormalities of the lower extremity
  • Review the normal walking gait cycle

  • Predict problems that can arise from altered lower extremity biomechanics
  • Apply visual analysis skills
  • Recognize some common gait abnormalities seen in gait analysis
  • View live case studies of course participants in gait analysis
  • Propose needling and exercise solutions for the gait abnormalities studied

The morning will be spent on anatomy/biomechanics/analysis
The afternoon will focus on treatment and needling techniques and will have hands on experience with participants having the opportunity to needle each other.
