Product Description

Review

Now onto its fourth edition this text aims to cover the gait cycle down to a tee. It starts you off on the basics and gradually progresses in more depth.

The subject of gait analysis is approached from a biomechanical point of view with a lot of joint angle analysis, levers and moments and quite a bit on the equipment used to analyse gait. At points you begin to feel like you are looking at a robot and you have to remind yourself that this is human gait analysis.

There does not seem to be much coverage of observational gait analysis which is one fundamental part of physiotherapy practice.

While this is generally a good book for gait analysis, for us, as physiotherapists, to benefit from it we may need to spend some time interpreting the text and applying it from a slightly different perspective.

- Steve Canning, In Touch, Spring 2008, No. 122.

This book takes you through the various phases of gait, the determinants of gait and then through gait deviations and pathology with simplicity and clarity for the most part. In reading about gait it is easy to get lost in a discussion of various force vectors, and this book strives and succeeds for the most part in keeping the reader out of such a morass. The book continues beyond gait deviations to discuss gait labs and also cutting edge subjects in gait. Good background reading for anyone with a need or interest in this kind of information.

reference library must have Aug. 13 2009

This was a great text in preparing for the CCSP and DACBSP exams. It's a more comprehensive text then a simple chapter of a sports injury textbook devoted toward the topic of gait analysis which is common. I would recommend every sports physician, ATC, PT, sports chiropractor and corrective exercise specialist to have this text in their reference library.
