Gait Analysis & Retraining

Gait Analysis & Retraining
With gait analysis, you will have an understanding of the way you run and how it can impact your performance. With a video assessment of your running style, it will be possible to understand how your running can generate ailments that can slow you down or stop you from training.
 
With a video from different angles of your stride, I will be able to see how good your gait is and working together, we will be able to correct your technique to make it as perfect as possible. Elite or amateur, the running technique is the same and with bad technique, injuries are never far away.
 
You will also be given a series of exercises to strengthen some group muscles to correct imbalances due to incorrect technique.
 
Here is a list of ailments that can be amended with gait re-training :

  • Iliotibial Band Syndrom
  • Plantar Fasciopathy
  • Tendinopathy (Achilles, Patellar, Gluteal and High Hamstring)
  • Calf Pain
  • Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome

Gait analysis will be done outdoor as I will need to video tape you running. It can be done in a park, in a parking lot or at a track if you have access to it. Please contact me for availability.
