Course Description

CEU Course Description

Limitations in ankle dorsiflexion have been associated with balance dysfunction and the development of altered gait patterns.  The goal of this CEU course is to investigate the relationship of ankle dorsiflexion, measured in non-weight bearing and weight bearing positions, to balance and gait performance in healthy young and older adults.

 

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Discuss for which age group non-weight bearing measurement of ankle DF contribute to temporal parameters of gait performance.
  2. Examine which parameter of balance performance WBDF measurements correlate.
  3. Identify the features for which deficits of ankle dorsiflexion during gait have been found to discriminate.
