High intensity gait training (HIGT) is a hot topic among physical therapists who treat clients with neurologic injury and who have goals to improve their waking function. This course helps to define this intervention, review the literature, discuss barriers, compare the traditional approaches to HIGT delivery, and discuss ways to implement HIGT into practice. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
