Walking with MS masterclass presented by Alan Pearson – Friday 16 July at 11am
During our series of masterclasses so far, we have covered a range of useful topics from balance and posture, to foot drop and core stability, so it would be logical now to deliver a masterclass on walking.
Identifying the problems with walking can be difficult as there are many elements to the walking cycle, but understanding where in the walking sequence is proving problematic will help focus the attention for the areas to work on. Many people with MS are challenged when walking for various reasons, whether this is due to balance issues, having trouble with foot placement, catching the foot as they step or experiencing weakness in the leg muscles, this masterclass will address these areas and demonstrate how to improve the different components of the walking cycle.
During the masterclass what can you expect?
Alan will break down the phases of walking and give some useful exercise practices that will help improve balance, coordination and overall walking confidence. There will be explanation on what is meant by ‘gait’, the typical phases of the walking cycle and overall to help improve the efficiency and safety of walking.
As always, Alan will do this in a fun and informal manner. So, come and join us on Friday 16 July at 11am.
