Gait Analysis

Gait is the way in which we move our whole body from one point to another (walking, running, etc.).  A Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities.

In an athletic setting this analysis helps to create a more efficient running and/or training technique.  When treating and assessing injuries a gait analysis is an effective tool used to identify postural, biomechanical and movement related problems or inefficiencies.
