This simple, yet effective approach to gait analysis does not rely on expensive cameras and fancy equipment. Using just your eyes, the information gained from observing your client walking can provide deep insight into potential weakness in the body and injuries just waiting to happen. Discover how to identify core dysfunction, muscle imbalances and postural issues with a 3- to 5-minute gait analysis. Then learn to conduct additional assessments that will provide the most information in the shortest possible time.
