WALKING ASSESSMENTS

What is it?

An assessment of your walking technique (gait) to identify any aspects of your gait that could be improved to enhance your movement patterns.

Using observation and slow motion video footage of you walking on our treadmill or outside we look at foot placement, stride length, leg alignment, arm swing, shoulder control, trunk and head posture. We may also do specific tests on joints and muscles to assess flexibility and strength.

We will then tailor a programme to address any problems identified. This may be physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation, a programme of strengthening or stretching exercises and specific walking drills. We will also offer impartial advice on footwear.

Who is it suitable for?

Walkers of all abilities can benefit especially:
