Gait Analysis

Clinics: Hampton, Purleigh, Chelmsford, Turners Hill

Practitioners: Joanne Barber, Natasha De Grunwald

Gait AnalysisGait is the way in which we move our whole body from one point to another. Most often, this is done by walking, although we may also run, skip, hop etc. Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities.

Gait analysis is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. It is also commonly used in sports to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries.

If it is found that there is an abnormality of your gait cycle, this can usually be corrected with a change in footwear, the use of orthotics, treatment and/or an exercise programme.
