Am I Walking/Running Correctly?

From a very early age we learn to walk one step at a time.  Each step is a complex combination of synchronized muscle and tendon motions across bone and joints to produce locomotion.  This process has been simulated and even copied in the process of creating movable objects, but never equaled in the accommodation and functionality.

Gait Analysis


FootstepsGait by definition is this process of motion. If any structure functions in a less than optimal fashion, the process may be accompanied by pain, deformity or even injury, That makes the analysis of the process of walking or running imperative for optimizing your own unique instruments of locomotion.

 

 

Gait Analysis Lab

A specialized, dedicated lab has been designed with technologically advanced instruments to allow true evaluation of running and walking abnormalities that may influence associated discomfort throughout the body.  Some analysis is only possible in such a specialized, dedicated lab, creating better patient care and more complete solutions.

Specialized gait analysis utilizing visual analysis, computer assisted in-shoe and barefoot analysis and video analysis tools.  All these modalities are utilized to produce effective evaluation of your running or walking patterns.
