Gait Analysis

Sometimes the problem is obvious…

There’s a lot to learn from observing the way someone moves. Imagine the roller skates above represent an injury where there wasn’t a complete recovery.  Maybe you can stand just fine, but ask your body to do something more challenging (like galloping) and stability flies out the window.

Our bodies strive to move in the most efficient (lowest energy cost) manner.  But the way we move varies between individuals, and those variations are important. 

We move based on the sum of the injuries we’ve experienced, the activities we are immersed in, and the movement patterns we harbor.
