Are you concerned about your posture? Do you think your pain may be from the way you walk or run? Then having a Gait Analysis could be what you need.
What is Gait Analysis?
Your gait is the way you walk or move so a Gait Analysis is simply an assessment of your walking posture. Our Podiatrists are well-trained to visually detect any abnormalities in your gait patterns from your head all the way to your feet. Gait analysis is generally used as part of a biomechanical examination to assess, plan, and treat your presenting complaint affecting the way you walk or run. At The Footcare Clinic, our Podiatrists will record your gait with a video camera and explain to you frame by frame in slow motion any abnormalities or asymmetry patterns we see. Doing this enables you to better understand your posture and how each movement affects your body.
