The Conservative Management of Gait-Related Disorders

This 90-minute video reviews normal motion during the gait cycle, as described in the textbook Human Locomotion. The initial section describes ideal motions during the stance and swing phases of gait. Subsequent sections of this lecture review, in detail, exactly what is happening in all joints of the body when we walk and run. The final section of this video goes over the various biomechanical factors associated with successful sprinting and endurance running. The video finishes with a discussion of examination techniques to identify risk factors associated with running; e.g., femoral anteversion and external tibial torsion. Gait retraining techniques are also discussed.

In 1993, Williams and Wilkins published Dr. Michaud’s first textbook, Foot Orthoses and Other Forms of Conservative Foot Care, which was eventually translated into four languages and continues to be used in physical therapy, chiropractic, pedorthic, and podiatry schools around the world.
