Description

This course is designed to be an awesome resource for students preparing for the NPTE. Many times, it can be very confusing and difficult to understand gait analysis and what can potentially go wrong during each phase. This course will help you:

  • Understand the normal joint motion occurring during each phase of gait
  • Which muscles are active and when
  • How to recognize gait deviations and abnormalities

Each phase of the gait cycle has its own "mini-lecture" consisting of about 10 minutes of material as we review the basics. This course will take about 2 hours to complete in its entirety.

These videos serve as an adjunct to your current plan of study and will help clarify gait analysis on the NPTE. Designed to be simple and clear, you'll be surprised at how easy this course allows you to analyze gait patterns.

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Doctor of Physical Therapy since 2011. I have been working hard for 2 years to create content that is helpful for students to pass the national board exam required to become a physical therapist. I have helped hundreds of students with live courses that I have done in the past and want to make a self-study course available to students who need the content at a lower cost.

PT Final Exam was founded in 2012 with the primary goal of being an awesome resource for students preparing to sit for the NPTE. I am a practicing physical therapist currently licensed in 3 states. Having a love for education, I began PT Final Exam in my spare time to help students understand completely what is required for the NPTE.

In my practice, I deal with a variety of issues including geriatric, pediatric, orthopaedic, inpatient, outpatient, wound care, home health, and long term care patients. Working with such a variety of patients requires me to stay sharp on my skills which is critical to my role as an instructor.
