The Kinetic Chain: Gait Analysis

Saturday, April 24 from 10 am - 1 pm (CT)

The study of movement as a whole - the kinetic chain - and the application of this analysis to examination and diagnosis of pathology is what makes physiatry so unique. The goal of this series is to revive your understanding of the principles of kinetic chain analysis and return it to the forefront of your practice.

Each session will highlight an aspect of physical motion and review typical human movement, as well as patterns seen in typical impairments. Faculty will provide practical tips on how they use their respective analyses in the evaluations of their patients. A robust Q&A session will accompany each event.

During our April 24 session, we discussed typical components of gait and its development. Faculty explored how gait is altered in different impairments and how understanding the kinetic chain influences one’s assessment of specific injuries and their treatment options. We also provided practical tips on how they use their respective analyses in the evaluations of their patients. Attendees can earn up to 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
