Running Gait Analysis with Pinnacle

A running gait assessment is an integral component of a biomechanical evaluation. Gait analysis is used to assess the way we walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities or running technique that might be filtering into injury risk. At Pinnacle, we have a treadmill set up and use a video analysis software to help pick up subtle abnormalities and asymmetries in the way you move when walking and running.

A gait analysis is generally performed during an initial consultation after we have had a discussion around your injury concerns and after discussing and identifying potential non-biomechanical and gait-related causes of pain.

How Is Gait Assessment Conducted?

Video gait analysis allows us to closely and thoroughly evaluate the movement and function of the leg and foot when walking and running. We use this data to identify abnormalities that may be contributing to pain, develop a strategy that will improve the efficiency of your gait and create a plan that will lower the risk of any issues from reoccurring in the future.

We use gait analysis Sydney services in conjunction with a variety of tests and assessments to identify possible gait related risk factors for pain or injury. The more information that we can gather from your walking and running movements, the more effectively we can deliver a treatment plan that will have you walking, running and jumping pain-free.
