Walking/Gait and Running Analysis

Walking and running involve and affect your whole body. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re executing them correctly.

Walking/Gait Analysis

It seems silly to think you’re not walking correctly because it’s something you haven’t had to think about since you gave up crawling.  In fact, it’s very complex and involves a lot of moving parts.  Incorrect form at your feet affects your knees, which affects your hips, then your low back and spine, all the way up to your shoulders and even your neck. Just a slight change can have a domino effect throughout the whole body.  Your physical therapist can assess your gait (walking pattern) and identify where the pain originates.


Running Analysis

Runners love to run! And we love that! We want to keep you running! Repetition of incorrect or inefficient stride can cause problems that are easily avoided with proper correction, strengthening, and stretching. Our clinicians will provide you with a video analysis of your running pattern so you can see and understand where improvements can be made. We also offer our Run Better Program which will provide you with video analysis and your own strengthening program.
