Our 3D gait analysis consultation is aimed at those with complex lower limb injuries, gait related issues or runners wanting an in-depth consultation regarding their gait in relation to injury
3D gait analysis allows you to truly understand why you have pain, the likely cause of injury & how running footwear & foot orthoses influence the lower limb. Using cutting edge technology 3D gait analysis provides the most accurate form of assessment for analysing running & walking motion. In-depth information with regards to injury risk & performance can be provided.
Initially we go through a detailed history of your presenting problem, including injury history, footwear history & running experience.
3D Gait Analysis
Provides accurate information regarding lower limb motion when running or walking in relation injury & performance allowing us to analyse how foot orthoses & footwear influence lower limb motion.
Report & Management Options
Following 3D gait analysis your podiatrist will then discuss & fully explain their findings & recommend a suitable management plan that can include strength & conditioning exercises, gait re-education advice, footwear advice with recommendations & orthotic therapy.
Through analysing the relationships or patterns during gait of the pelvis, hip, knee, lower leg, foot & ankle through the sagittal, frontal & transverse planes of movement we can better understand the possible cause of injury & ways to optimise your gait to reduce injury.
Performance parameters such as cadence, over stride, vertical motion & ground contact time are also measured & analysed.
Footwear/foot orthoses comparisons can be carried out to provide more accurate information as to which may be more optimal for you with regards to fatigue, reducing injury risk factors & optimising performance.
