What is Gait Analysis?
Simply put, it's a systematic study of the way that you walk and use your body to move. Like in most areas of life, even with moving, it's easy to pick up bad habits. But unlike drinking too much or smoking, it's not as easy to know if you've developed a habit that's hindering you when you move.
By looking at the way you walk and run, it's possible to work out any imbalances, problems with movement or posture issues. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned sportsperson, or just someone having a bit of difficulty getting about, gait analysis can help you.
You might think gait assessment means only looking at your legs and feet, but this isn't the case. We look at your complete biomechanics to get a better picture. This means your full body's movement is taken into account. Body parts you might think have little bearing on your walking and running can actually have a large effect. We'll look at everything in detail to help you move more comfortably.
