    Hello Everyone

    Apologies in advance if I come off a little naive/ill-informed, I'm still new to this game.

    At university we were taught the GALS (gait, arms, legs, spine) assessment but to date I have yet to see any practitioner carry out this assessment in practice. My question is, when is it indicated to carry out this assessment? And do most podiatrists refer to GP for this assessment? I'm a little perplexed as to why I completed a whole module on this and I'm not seeing it used in practice??

    Thanks

    Nicola

    Probably the reason that no one has responded is that no one has heard of the GALS assessment. I certainly have, but probably know what it is ...

    It just sounds like doing a full body gait analysis which I think most of us probably do, but just don't give it a fancy name.
