6 Hour QME Continuing Education Home Study Program - Author: Perry J. Carpenter DC, QME, FACO  


Permanent Impairments due to "Gait Disturbance" are everywhere!  And, Chapters 13, 15, and 17 of the AMA Guides provide for generous Permanent Impairments due to 1) neurologic injury, 2) spinal injury, 3) lower extremity neurologic injury, and 4) lower extremity orthopedic injury.  And, more and more Applicant Attorneys are demanding at least SOME discussion of Permanent Impairment by analogy to "Gait Disturbance."  This Program is a complete course on "gait" and "gait disturbance" and distills these complex subjects down to the level important in navigating the AMA Guides. 


Topics Include:

  1. AMA Guides descriptions of "gait derangements" in Chapters 13, 15, and 17
  2. Procedure for the Gait Analysis & Observation
  3. The Gait Cycle - Descriptions of the Phases of "Normal" versus "Pathologic" Gait
  4. Gait Disturbances - Causes of Deviations from the Normal Gait
  5. Name Gait Signs - Antalgic Gait, Trendelenberg Gait, Spastic Gait, Ataxic Gait, Festinating Gait, Gluteus Maximus Lurch, Steppage Gait, others.  Each of these gaits is demonstrated by Live Video.
  6. Assistive Devices - canes, crutches, walkers, pick up frames.  Enhanced video discussion include "Proper Use and Fit of a Cane", and "Establishing the Medical Necessity of a Cane"


 For Chiropractors, this Course qualifies ALSO for Board of Chiropractic Examiners "Category A" credits for History Taking & Physical Examination.
