Video Gait Analysis
A Physical Therapist will analyze your gait (walking pattern) on our in-house treadmill. Walking is the most "repetitive daily task" that every individual does, and can be a source of "repetitive injury." A video monitor will enable us to see, while in motion, how your gait pattern (and running pattern, if desired) is affected by your posture, balance, strength, flexibility and the shoes you wear. This allows us to highlight biomechanical patterns with more precise feedback in order for us to make a powerful and objective gait and biomechanical analysis. Based on this information the therapist will be better able to identify abnormal movement patterns and implement a corrective treatment plan. This plan may include specific stretching and strengthening exercises as well as recommendations on footwear, over –the-counter inserts, and/or custom foot orthotics.
Sport Specific Analysis
Sport-Specific Analysis (SSA) is provided to analyze, educate, instruct, and provide athletes with performance analysis results and on-going training (if desired) that will allow you to participate in healthy sport activities and to maximize your potential. SSA provides athletes with quality, evidence-based training to reduce injury risk on the field as well as increase their athletic potential. Programs are individualized to each athlete to allow for the greatest gains and improvement towards their particular goals. All analysis and training is supervised by Physical Therapists and is completed with specific goals in mind including injury prevention, speed enhancement, agility, power, strength, balance, flexibility, and functional movement. Enhance your abilities and help address your special health and performance needs.
