What is Gait Analysis?
Put simply, Gait Analysis is a technique used to evaluate the way we walk or run to determine if any biomechanical irregularities exist.
Gait Assessment is the key way to identify irregular forces affecting the joints, muscles and ligaments that may be causing mobility issues or foot pain.
People that undergo Gait Assessments include Athletes with persistent lower limb overuse injuries, toddlers and infants that display excessive intoed walking, and children that complain of heel pain.
Sometimes it is necessary, to determine exactly what is happening with your foot, under the skin's surface.
