Get Ahead of Your Limitations With A Structural Gait Analysis
Always make sure that you know what the odds are and how you can improve them by receiving a structural gait analysis.
What is a Structural Gait Analysis?
A structural gait analysis is a simple series of tests to determine your individual stability, foot alignment and walking patterns. This helps to discover whether you’re at risk for foot and ankle injuries due to an improper gait.
Although walking is a simple task that your body just knows how to do, sometimes it is not performed properly due to weaknesses or limitations that you may not be aware of.
An improper gait can cause many different injuries, including:
- Foot injuries.
- Ankle injuries.
- Back pain.
- Increased fall risk.
How Can Receiving a Structural Gait Analysis Help Me?
