Lower Quarter PRT and Gait Analysis

In this course, we breakdown the basics of gait analysis and introduce functional exercises and Lower Quarter Positional Release Therapy techniques to correct abnormalities found. At the end of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Be able to describe the Mechanical Coupling Theory and how its supporting evidence is applicable for application of PRT for lower quarter somatic dysfunction;
  • Be able to apply and demonstrate at least three PRT lower quarter techniques to treat common lower quarter conditions such as MTSS ("shin splints");
  • Recall at least five clinical implications and contraindications of PRT and
  • Verbalize how lower quarter PRT and Gait Analysis can be integrated into a Plan of Care (POC).
  • Show the ability to conduct a static and dynamic lower quarter gait assessment
  • Articulate at least three differences between normal and pathological gait mechanics
  • List at least three abnormal gait mechanics (e.g., late stance pronation) that may result in somatic lesion loading patterns
  • 17.75 CE eligible for PT, PTA, AT, LMT and other practitioners. 

* This course encompasses our online and/or live course: Positional Release Therapy: An Evidenced Based Update (1.75 CE) and a one hour online gait lecture (1.0 CE). Registered participants will receive an online lecture and quiz to complete prior to taking the laboratory portion of the course, which must be completed at least one week prior to the course offering.
