Gait is the way in which we move our whole body from one point to another. Most often, this is done by walking, although we may also run, skip, hop, etc. Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities. Gait analysis usually involves walking or running on a treadmill. In some cases, the professional will simply watch the way that you move, looking particularly at your feet, ankles, knees and hips. In more specialist settings, a video recorder will often be set-up behind the treadmill which will record film of your gait cycle.
How do I benefit from a gait analysis?
It can be helpful to identify overactive/underactive muscles, potential injuries, and inefficiencies. This analysis can really help make physical activity enjoyable again without the pain and injury added to it.
