Gait Analysis

At Movement State Physical Therapy, we understand the importance of proper running mechanics in achieving peak performance and preventing injuries.

Our comprehensive running analysis is designed to help runners of all levels optimize their technique, enhance efficiency and reduce the risk of injury.

Too many runners fall victim to a run related injuries and are unable to attribute any particular cause to their ailment. Our running analysis will allow us to better assist you with the how, why, and what has caused this running-related injury. We utilize 2D, multi-planar running assessments aided with slow-motion video recording and a head-to-toe assessment.

These methods help us gather detailed information regarding your foot strike pattern, stride length, cadence, posture, joint alignment, and muscle activation. We look for areas of weakness, imbalance, or asymmetries that may predispose you to injury and are causing you pain while running. Based on the findings of the analysis, we develop a personalized plan to address your specific needs and goals.

This may include exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and coordination, as well as modifications to your running technique and programing. Whether you’re training for a marathon, improving your race times, or simply aiming to enjoy running more comfortably, our running analysis will help identify areas you can improve on to keep running.
