Topic: Running Gait Analysis – An Overview of the 5 Most Common Running Error Classifications

6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Wilmington Hospital, 501 W 14th Street, Wilmington, DE 19801 – Brandywine Conference Center, Room 4, 8th Floor*

Speaker: Ari Kaplan, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, COMT, Cert MDT

Topic Description: Assessing running gait can be both difficult and time consuming.  What factors matter?  What angles should you look at?  It can quickly be overwhelming.  During this 1-hour talk, we will simplify this process as we review our classifications for the most common and meaningful running gait errors, which may be contributing to your patient’s pain.
