Proper walking technique is crucial for lifelong vibrant health. Understand and refine your working knowledge of gait and posture in action to improve your client’s outcome.
The Anatomy and Biomechanics of Walking (ABW) program is designed for health professionals with a working knowledge of anatomy who are dedicated to improving their clients’ and students’ vitality through efficient biomechanics when walking.
Learn a variety of assessment tools to observe imbalances: range of motion testing, palpation, and video/photo gait analysis.
Discover which muscles might be inhibiting ideal gait and creating repetitive stress injuries and learn targeted strategies to correct them.
Optimize biomechanics to free your clients for greater lift, alignment, and power every time they walk.
Be inspired by conversations with your colleagues, their insights, experiences, and successes.
