A Gait Analysis is the assessment of an individual’s walking or running pattern to analyse biomechanical mobility in relation to the lower limbs. Our walking and running gait can often be responsible for a multitude of pains and injuries experienced by individuals and athletes. However, the majority of people do not know their gait patterns and how footwear can also contribute to this.
Therefore, a Gait Analysis is designed to help determine abnormalities in relation to the functional movement of the body. Such an analysis can contribute to a greater understanding of how various injuries may have occurred. Furthermore, a Gait Assessment or Analysis can assist in the development of individualised treatment plans that aim to improve biomechanics and aid in the prevention of further issues.
Our professional and multidisciplinary team consisting of Physiotherapists, Podiatrists and Exercise Physiologists have the experience and knowledge perform a Gait Analysis. Working together, our Podiatrists and Exercise Physiologists use state of the art Video Gait Assessment technology to analyse exactly how your biomechanics may have contributed to the injury.
Meanwhile, our Physiotherapists assess your gait from a musculoskeletal perspective. Individually or combined, these assessments will find the root cause of the patient’s concerns in order to ensure that we can prevent any further problems and return the individual back to the activities they enjoy, quicker.
