Gait & Running AnalysisChartered Physiotherapy in Blackpool, St. Annes, Lytham, Poulton, Cleveleys and Fleetwood
What is gait analysis?
Gait analysis is essentially the assessment of your walking and running patterns. Illness or injury can change the way that you move around in a number of different ways. For instance, you may dip down at the hip when standing still which can lead to back pain and hip bursitis. You may be surprised at how small changes to your stance and technique can lead to potentially chronic and debilitatingly painful conditions.
How do you treat dysfunctions?
Your physiotherapist is a gait expert. They’ll observe you walking, running and generally moving around with and without shoes on to pinpoint areas of vulnerability and dysfunction. They’ll then recommend a programme of treatment that’s tailored to your specific condition and aims.
