A gait analysis, or evaluation, is used to screen for any biomechanical issues during running or walking. Athletes prone to ‘shin splints’, knee pain, IT Band/hip issues or low back pain during running may benefit from this evaluation. Conversely, athletes looking to increase their pace or mileage may also obtain useful information to give them a more competitive edge.
This analysis includes:
- Frame by frame capture to track landmarks during motion
- Orthopedic/musculoskeletal assessment
- Functional movement assessment
- Foot and arch assessment for shoe or orthotic recommendation
- Corrective exercise recommendations
These assessments combine to allow us to determine areas which may benefit from corrective exercise or improvement.
