The Kinetic Chain: Gait Analysis
Description
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 the series is to revive understanding of the principles of kinetic chain analysis and return it to the forefront of one's 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 this session, faculty will discuss typical components of gait and its development. Faculty will explore how gait is altered in different impairments and how understanding the kinetic chain influences one’s assessment of specific injuries and their treatment options. Faculty will provide practical tips on how they use their respective analyses in the evaluations of their patients.
