How does the 3D Gait Analysis work?

You will come to the clinic for two visits.  We will have you walk or run to measure the biomechanics at your hips, knees and ankles in three dimensions.  This allows us to compare your walking or running pattern to an extensive database of uninjured patients world-wide.

In the first visit, our physiotherapist will first perform a physiotherapy examination to assess your strength, flexibility and joint mobility.  Then our technician will perform the 3D Gait Analysis.  This visit takes about 60-75 minutes.

In the second visit, the physiotherapist will review your 3D Gait Analysis report and explain the findings.  Afterwards, she will provide your individual recommendations and treatment plan developed from the Biomechanical Gait Analysis and physical assessment done the first day.
