Video Gait Analysis

What is video gait analysis?

Video gait analysis uses slow-motion recordings of a runner or walker on a treadmill. These recordings are then used to analyze the individual's stride. 2D motion analysis software allows your physical therapist to measure/view the stride and measure angles at key points during the gait cycle.

For runners, injury prevention and consistency of training are the keys to improving performance and maintaining short-term and long-term health. At Physical Therapy ONE, we offer slow-motion video gait analysis to analyze a runner or walker's stride. Using this information, we can educate you on proper footwear, areas of muscle strength and flexibility that require improvement, and tips to improve running form.

Who would benefit?

  • injury free runners and walkers of all ages(proper running form and the correct footwear are crucial to consistent training and injury prevention)
  • injured runners and walkers(whether you are dealing with a recent injury or a long-term ache or pain, correcting walking form, wearing proper footwear and stretching/strengthening key muscles can help to speed recovery and get you back to doing what you love!)

  • plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
