Gait analysis for pain relief or performance

 

Humans were designed to walk and run, pain free. Pushing through that nasty pain you get a mile 2 of your run is not cool. Bad habits are easily formed and often go unnoticed.  A proper gait analysis can help identify functional limitations and movement dysfunction that can lead to pain or poor performance. We utilize the data we gather during this analysis to help with diagnosis of pain driven patterns but also as a way to improve performance and efficiency during training and racing. Proper sequencing of muscle activation and overall body position is critical for long term health while running and full enjoyment. Our analysis includes a full physical evaluation as well as high speed video analysis on and off the treadmill with EMG.
