Event description
This special 2-day event brings anatomy to life. By exploring the essential events of gait we build a 4-dimensional view of the body.

About this event

Walking is one of the most common daily functions, but one of the least understood biomechanically. To understand anatomy the therapist must first understand function.

On this course, we analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of movement events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. Upon completing this course you will have the tools to understand true, real-life movement and how to correct faulty patterns.

Based on the well researched and well-received text of the same name, this workshop is designed to help the therapist understand functional anatomy. In this workshop we analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of movement events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. We explore how gravity and momentum work in concert with joints and the fascial and myofascial tissue to improve proprioceptive communication, muscle firing, and collagenous tissue recoil.

You will come away with the tools to investigate, analyse and intervene in non-pathological walking. We will explore the many ways in which collagenous tissues assist movement efficiency and then learn how to build a personalised movement program to improve your clients’ gait.

This course helps you:

Assess your client’s postural and movement patterns with greater accuracy

Analyse the normal motion of the spine

Understand the connections and correcting mechanisms between the pelvis and the feet

Assess the feet and their role in shock absorption

Relate textbook anatomy to your client’s actual movement patterns

Apply Myofascial Slings & Robert Schleip’s Fascial Fitness in function

Effectively identify and correct your client’s faulty movement patterns

Course Objectives:

The workshop will:

Build connections between the architecture and the functions of connective tissue

Help you understand fascial and anatomical links through the body & the sequence of events through the joints in a normal gait

Supply you with an understanding of fascial recoil and the roles of mechanoreceptors in the myofascia

Demonstrate the significance of tensegrity of fascia and human movement

Give you the tools to apply various gait assessments and then construct alternative movement strategies to help unwind and resolve compromised patterns

Provide you with a fun, relaxed, informative and empowering experience that you can implement the next day in the clinic
