We Can Help Reduce Your Foot Pain.
Our pain specialists and podiatrists understand that you want to feel better and stay as active as possible. Perhaps you’re already a mother who needs to keep up with the little ones. Perhaps you’re a working professional and need to be at your best for long hours. Perhaps you’re an athlete, training for two.
A Gait Analysis Gets To The Root Of The Problem.
You carry yourself differently during pregnancy and even subtle changes in how you walk and stand can cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics, which can put stress on joints higher up your body, with increased aches and pains. Your feet are your foundation, so the first step is to assess how you walk and see where your feet take the pressures.
Our highly skilled podiatrists evaluate your gait through observation, treadmill and video analysis, and innovative pressure plate technology – a step onto the pressure plate can identify abnormal foot pressures and movements during the footstep that are not visible to the eye.
You Can Benefit From Gait Analysis If You Have:
- Pain when walking or running
- Foot, ankle, knee, hip pain or back pain
- Balance issues and bad posture
- Flat feet, high arches or plantar fasciitis
- Sore feet when standing all day
You don’t have to wait until you have pain. A gait analysis early in pregnancy can get you started, and prevent later problems. Gait assessment is a reliable way of diagnosing the causes of these and other musculoskeletal pains during pregnancy, and helps decide the right treatment.
