Running Gait Analysis
Amber Hill Physical Therapy now offers gait analysis for runners by A.C.E. Running Gait Analyst Kelly Reichenbaugh, PT, DPT.
Running is great exercise, but it is hard work. It requires strength and mobility throughout the body as well as mental and physical endurance. Without a proper balance, it can put unnecessary forces and impact on the body. Over time, these forces can lead to break down of form and subsequent injury.
The program takes runners through a comprehensive evaluation to determine where improvements can be made in gait technique and training. This includes a functional movement analysis and video gait analysis to identify mobility, balance, strength and gait deficits.
