If your body is functioning badly and inefficiently then things will wear out more quickly than they should do. A 10 km run means approximately 10,000 steps with 3 times your body weight going through each limb on every step, if your gait is mal-aligned then it is likely that you will eventually get symptoms in your body related to this. Gait analysis can help with this problem. Many problems in the lower limbs and even in the pelvis and lower back can be associated with the way we walk and run and are extremely common. Gait analysis is an invaluable tool in the accurate diagnosis of chronic lower limb injuries. The skill the Podiatrist has during analysis of your gait pattern and relating this to your physical symptoms can aid in the control of the problem. Using orthotic device therapy often in conjunction with the physiotherapy the cause can be isolated and effectively treated, resolving the specific injury/problem. The examination may take place by simply observing you walk or on a treadmill if you participate in sport and F Scan in-shoe pressure analysis is also available at extra cost.
