Hi everyone. I’ve seen a few mentions here of gait assessments. As my interest will primarily be in working with older adults, I imagine that such an assessment would be a valuable tool. But it wasn’t part of my certification materials, and I’d like to find out how to perform it correctly. I know I can find videos on Youtube, but I really want to make sure I’m doing a scientifically sound assessment. Can anyone point me in a direction for learning this? Thank you!
The only way to acquire the knowledge and skill is to research the material and practice implementing the material. You could try to find a physical therapist in your area to mentor you. Or another Personal Trainer with more experience. The suggested courses in Denny’s answer are very good for this and much more.
