Gait Analysis (FHT Accredited)


A great addition to your massage or fitness skills.  If you see a lot of runners in your clinic, this course is perfect for you to establish if injury, tension or weakness is actually caused by poor running form or foot biomechanics. You will learn a series of muscle tests, foot posture index and hip firing patterns to investigate problem areas.  You will use a treadmill to assess barefoot walking technique and then running form, analysing the relationship between lower and upper body alignment and then be able to offer advice on running technique with stretching and strengthening of specific muscles.
