RUN GAIT ANALYSIS

Gait is the way in which we move our whole body from one point to another. Run Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way we run to highlight bio-mechanical abnormalities. Abnormalities are inefficiencies in our run cycle, typically it is associated with injury. Being able to move more efficiently is important in avoiding these injuries. Having joints capable of producing sufficient force is important to generate an effective gait cycle. If joints are stiff, this is usually caused by muscle tightness, the end result will be limited range of motion or weak muscles. In turn, your body has to find ways to compensate for those problems, this leads to bio-mechanical abnormalities.

 

The following are a list of common overuse injuries associated with poor gait biomechanics:

  • Shin splints
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Iliotibial band syndrome (runners knee)
  • Patella tendonitis (jumpers knee)
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Lower back paindeficiencies identified.

High speed HD video camera will be used to record your natural run gait. This recording will then be analyzed for inefficiencies, and appropriate mitigation exercises and stretches will be recommended.

 

Recording session (typically 0:30 – 1:00):

  • HD Video recording session at a local track using the standardized analysis protocol.
  • Explanation of what proper run mechanics should look and feel like.
  • Body position drill practice.
  • Discussion of factors that prevent running well, and running well off the bike for triathletes.

 

Analysis session (typically 1:00-1:30)

  • Video review with your analyst following your recording session will identify any run mechanic deficiencies.
  • Comparison of your stride to other “perfect form” professional athletes.
  • Suggestion of any required strengthening, and/or stretching activities to compensate for run mechanic deficiencies identified.
  • Running drill suggestion if required to compensate for run mechanic deficiencies identified.
