And what do we see here?
Let’s test your Observation skills:
Another “Gait Quickie”. Please watch the video (front and side views) and come back to see if you saw what we did:
· Cross over gait
o Should be no cross over
· Decreased progression angle R > L
o Progression angles should be relatively symmetrical
· Increase valgus angle at knees
o Q angle less than 12 degrees
· Arm swing increased on L
o Should be symmetrical
· Pelvic shift L > R
o Should be little pelvic shift to either side
· Foot strike in front of body
o Should be under body
· Lack of or incomplete hip extension
o Hip should extend at least to match ankle dorsiflexion. We find 15 degrees is requisite to be asymptomatic
· Forward flexion at waist
o Forward lean should be at ankles
