Join the Central District for a CE event on Monday, January 15 at 6:30 PM at Hofbrauhaus Columbus. "Improving Transfemoral Amputee Gait: A Step in the Right DIrection!", will discuss whether a prosthetic gait deviation is caused by an alignment problem with the prosthesis, a poor gait habit adopted by the amputee, or a muscular/joint weakness that can be corrected by strengthening exercises. This presentation identifies the most common gait deviations for transfemoral lower extremity amputees and reviews their causes, effects, and corrections. The presentation will feature digital video examples of the gait deviations as well as demonstration of the methods of correcting the challenge. After this one-hour CE event, stick around for the Central District PT Pub Night and mingle with your fellow CN district PTs, PTAs and PT Students!
