Edited by Jim Richards, BEng, MSc, PhD, David Levine, PT, PhD, DABPTS (Orthopaedics), CCRP and Michael W. Whittle, BSc, MSc, MB, BS, PhD

Publication Date: 30 Sep 2022

This readable textbook offers a clear and accessible guide to the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from medical conditions that affect the way they walk.

The book describes both normal and pathological gait and covers the range of simple and complex methods available to perform gait analysis. It will help the reader differentiate the gait cycle phases and pathological gait patterns, identify related factors, and direct therapy precisely.

Now in its sixth edition, Whittle's Gait Analysis has been fully updated by a small team of expert contributors to include the latest thinking on methods of gait analysis and its role in the clinic, making it an ideal text for undergraduate students through to practising allied health professionals.
