Product Code:
  1. Analyze gait from the perspective of its’ energy, flow and symmetry.
  2. Inspect how proprioception affects movement and movement pattern restoration.
  3. Integrate multiple approaches for better outcomes, including balance and gait training, and neuromuscular re-education.
  4. Appraise using therapeutics that enhance proprioception, resistance, assistance and a combination of all of these to address patients with gait, balance, mobility and chronic pain issues.
  5. Determine the influence of the VOR (Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex) on gait, movement and balance.
  6. Assess integrating Amy Cuddy’s power poses as an effective intervention in the treatment of gait, balance and pain disorders.
