Gait Analysis 

 

Gait analysis is a clinical assessment used to identify biomechanical abnormalities in the gait cycle (the way we walk and run). Gait analysis is imperative and beneficial as it can identify any muscular imbalances, overactive or underactive muscles in the body, which could lead to potential injuries and poor sport performance. We recommend gait analysis to all athletes as it has an incredible potential to prevent injuries, improve sporting performance and correct biomechanical abnormalities.

Common Gait (walking/running) Problems:

  • Hip drop

  • Foot overpronation

  • Foot over supination

  • Increased Q angle

  • Limited ankle range of motion

  • Pelvic tilt

 

Common overuse injuries associated with poor gait biomechanics:

  • Shin splints

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Lower back pain

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Patella tendonitis (jumpers’ knee)

  • Iliotibial band syndrome (Runners’ knee)

Our therapist has a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine a treatment plan.

We take precise history and perform a thorough assessment and postural analysis in order to determine exactly where the problem, tension and or injury is within the muscular system with the aim of eliminating the root cause, not just the symptoms.
