When a small problem develops in your feet, the subtle change in the way you walk can cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics.
What is Gait Analysis?
Gait analysis is a method for identifying biomechanical abnormalities in the gait cycle – in other words it’s a way of assessing the way in which you walk and run.
A biomechanical examination and gait analysis may indicate that you need to wear orthotics. Orthotics (or orthoses) are inserts that can improve alignment and alter malfunction to ease aches pains and reduce incidence of future structure related symptoms.
At Podiatry Plus Scotland we have state of the art equipment to assist in detecting abnormal foot function and, where required, allow your fully trained Podiatrists to prescribe and manufacture custom-made orthotics to relieve your pain and correct any imbalances.
