Video Gait Analysis Benefits
We’ll also use the results of your video gait analysis to analyze the way you walk and check if you exhibit any abnormal lower extremity biomechanics. This additional assessment is very beneficial if you have a history of foot, knee, hip, or lower back pain.
Abnormal loading patterns through the lower extremity may cause unwanted stress and strain across the joints and soft tissues of the lower extremity.
Your sports medicine physical therapist will use video gait analysis to figure out if you would benefit from orthotics or a change in shoe style to improve your lower extremity biomechanics.
