Gait and Biomechanical Analysis

One of the most important factors in resolving an injury or musculo-skeletal condition is to determine which structures are involved and why they are hurting. Good anatomical knowledge along with biomechanical evaluation and gait analysis are essential tools in determining why someone has a particular problem.

We use advanced digital video analysis which allows us to examine human movement and detect abnormalities occurring during the gait cycle.

Foot pressure evaluation is sometimes a useful tool in ascertaining certain gait abnormalities but we never use foot pressure techniques, with or without a computer, as the only means of evaluating a patient.  At our clinic we use a state of the art pressure plate to enhance our clinical evaluation.  Pressure evaluation can be a beneficial part of a biomechanical assessment.

A thorough biomechanical evaluation in conjunction with a critical gait analysis is vital. All our patients receive a complete assessment and we always write our own orthotic prescriptions.
