Injury risk reduction
We look at how you move and how strong you are and then create a rehabilitation and exercise programme to work on those areas that may need some work. By getting you stronger and more mobile, we can reduce the risk of some non contact injuries.
Gait analysis is the analysis of the way a person walks or runs. This can be used as a diagnostic tool if someone is experiencing pain whilst running or walking or to highlight an imbalance, weakness or restriction in a joint or muscle. Or it can be used to enhance performance by reducing inefficiency in the gait to increase an athletes performance. This is performed in our private rehab suite on a treadmill with video analysis.
