If you’re a runner, a gait analysis can be used to improve your functional biomechanics. This will optimise your running technique, improve your performance and reduce your risk of injury.

A gait analysis is used to assess the way we move when walking or running. It’s an effective way to identify any inefficient or incorrect movement patterns and habits that you may have developed in your lifetime.

“The Importance of Running Technique”

The assessment will involve walking or running on a treadmill whilst being recorded from multiple angles. We will then replay and analyse the recording in slow motion whilst freezing frames at specific points of interest. Your gait will be analysed throughout the session, highlighting any corrections that need to be made. This gives you a unique opportunity to see yourself moving, often being quite a revelation, and often not what you expected to see! But don’t be worried, we’re here to support you in the process of transforming and optimising your gait to improve your performance and reduce injuries.
