Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis

So what is Gait Analysis??
Gait is simply the way in which we move our whole body from one point to another. More often than not we may also run, skip, hop, waddle, jump and any way you imagine.
Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we walk or run and to highlight/ if any biomechanical abnormalities. Having the ability to move efficiently and having a “good” “normal” “neutral” “fluid” gait is important in avoiding injuries. It is crucial to have joints capable of providing good quality, and good direction of movement, in addition to having muscles capable of producing sufficient force is vital to generate an efficient gait cycle. If a joint is stiff whether due to trauma, tight muscles, osteo arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis or any other condition that effects the joints then the body must find ways of compensating for problem, leading to the biomechanical deformities, and therefore paving the way to show purpose for a biomechanical assessment by one of the Podiatrists within our team.
