Feedback from gait analysis will help you walk or run more efficiently.
Analyzing the way you move your body from one point to another, whether walking or running, can highlight biomechanical abnormalities that lead to many common injuries, such as:
- Shin splints
- Plantar fasciitis
- Iliotibial band syndrome
- Patellar tendonitis
- Patello-femoral knee pain
- Achilles tendonitis
- Lower back pain
An IRG therapist will observe and carefully assess the way that you move your feet, ankles, knees, and hips, specifically looking at pronation, the inward-turning movement of your foot as it touches the ground that provides cushioning for the body.
Your movements may be recorded while you walk or run on a treadmill to help demonstrate to you where adjustments should be made. Feedback from gait analysis will help you walk or run more efficiently, with the goal of relieving and eliminating overuse injuries and helping you to be your best self.
