Gait & Running Analysis

Boehm's Physiotherapy

Running Analysis & Programs

We need to walk well before we can run. Often after an injury, particularly a lower body injury, your walking and running patterns can change. Gait (your everyday walking pattern) is something that you do thousands of times every day. This makes it VERY important to ensure proper technique so that you are not placing strain in a specific area. We are experts at both walking and running and from that proper analysis we can build strength exercises and movement drills to restore you to perfect form. It is difficult to self-analyze your running and walking patterns and as trained physiotherapists, we can easily see these faults during your walk or run.

Once analyzed, we can break it into easy and simple drills to being to restore better motion which will result in smoother and easier movements. This will also result in ultimately stronger and faster movements that you can easily repeat. A strong foundation of proper movements is much like a foundation on a house. The more solid your movement patterns are, the stronger the foundation for you to run on safely.

Gait & running analysis can involve video analysis which will give you visual feedback to work from to better improve your movement. This can demonstrate to you a starting point and track your progress as you move towards better walking and running patters. Walking and running movement analysis is a good idea especially for anyone who is considering doing a marathon or any type of endurance event. Running analysis can help to improve imperfect technique. Running has a specific technique that if done correctly will help to avoid injuries.

If you are having difficulty walking or running longer distances and feel that you would like to do this in an easier, or pain-free manner, then you need to come and see the professionals at Boehm’s Physiotherapy for your gait or running analysis today!
