Do you get pain when you walk or run?
Do your feet, ankles, shins or knees hurt after exercise?
Do you have abnormal wear on your shoes?
This can be a sign of alignment issues causing injury to your joints and muscles
- When you are walking your body absorbs up to three times your body weight with each foot strike.
- When you are running your body absorbs up to ten times your body weight with each foot strike.
- Studies show that up to 79% of runners develop an overuse injury in a year and 70% of these injuries will reoccur.
- Injuries to the knees, feet and lower legs make up 72% of all running injuries.
- The major cause of overuse injury is biomechanical alignment issues and poor running technique.
We perform a four page report from our Computerised Gait Analysis in-conjunction with a physical biomechanics assessment to set up your treatment regime. Treatment may involve prescribing:
- Appropriate footwear (specific shoe sneaker models- if it is exercise related)
- Gait Retraining
- Arch supports or 3D Laser Scanned Orthotics
Some typical biomechanical disorders we observe include:
- Excessive pronation
- Over supination
