Back Works - NDTA Advanced Gait Course

Location: Waterloo, ON
Date: June 19-23, 2019
Instructor: Karen Guha, PT, NDTA™ Coordinator Instructor

This five-day advanced course is designed for physical and occupational therapists working, with clients with stroke or brain injuries, interested in further developing their assessment and treatment skills to enhance the patient/client’s function in the upright posture.  The interrelationship of the lower extremity with other body segments and systems is emphasized.  Analysis of functional tasks, specifically the movement components that contribute to a person's independent performance of tasks in the upright posture will be addressed.  Therapists will have an opportunity to revisit the biomechanical components of normal gait, discuss and analyze common deviations of gait in the above-mentioned patient populations and learn potential treatment strategies to diminish the impact of gait deviations on the patient’s ability to function while ambulating.  As a prerequisite to attend this course, participants must have completed an NDT/Bobath Certificate Course in the Management of Adults with Stroke and Brain Injury (formerly Adults with Hemiplegia) or a Certificate Course in the Treatment and Management of Individuals with Cerebral Palsy.
