A Gait Analysis is an Assessment of How You Walk.
It Can be Divided into Two Main Parts:
• Looking at how you stand.
• Looking at how you walk.
This part of the assessment will only give us an idea of what is actually happening when you are walking or standing. We look out for the obvious markers, such as;
These are all symptoms of poor biomechanics and need to be investigated further.
• The quality and movement of your joints.
• Muscle strength.
• Nerve response.
• Foot condition.
• Foot type and shape.
• Wear pattern. (corns/callouses)
It is only at this point of your assessment that we can begin to understand what is causing your problem, and that we can advise you on the best course of action to take.
