    About

    This one day workshop has been developed to give the candidate the skills to be able to understand basic biomechanical principles which provides knowledge to achieve your clients goals whilst minimising injury potential.

    The course has been designed to teach the student how to analyse gait effectively and to begin to understand its effects on other structures in the body.

    By the end of the course the candidate will be able to use equipment such as a video or andriod and IOS software on their phones/tablets to identify and understand the gait of their clients and its implications.

    It will be useful for therapists with the skills to be able to use the information to develop a treatment plan to correct any dysfunction. It is ideal for Sports Therapists, Physiotherapists and Sports Massage Practitioners.
