Foot Pain – GAIT ANALYSIS

Because your feet are subject to enormous use and constant wear, even small abnormalities can cause big problems. Orthotics – inserts for shoes – can effectively correct many physical problems that arise from improper foot mechanics. Ask me to perform a gait analysis on you.

GAIT ANALYSIS

This service includes video analysis of your gait using a specially equiped treadmill, and a precise, computerized assessment of the biomechanics of your feet as you walk. This test will help determine if you need orthotics.

Consider a Gait Analysis if:

You suffer from general aches and pains from the foot to the lower back

You have “flat” feet or “high arches”

You suffer from pain anywhere in the foot, or in the ankles, knees, calves, hip or low back, either chronically or with athletic activity

You have calluses or corns

You have abnormal wear on your shoes

You have arthritis in your lower back
