Gait analysis is the study of human motion, using the eye and the brain of observers, enhanced by instruments for measuring body movements, body mechanics, and the activity of the muscles. At Sally Pembery Associates we use it to assess and treat pain in the lower limbs, knees, hips, lower back and feet. We also use it in sports biomechanics to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture- or movement-related problems in people with injuries.
When you come in for a personal gait assessment, our experts will use biomechanics and gait analysis to create a treatment plan tailor made for you. For our biomechanics patients we have a specialist gait analysis lab that uses digital video gait analysis and computerised pressure measurement systems to help identify, diagnose and treat foot, leg, and lower back pain or injuries associated with faulty biomechanics.
The gait analysis laboratory at Sally Pembery Associates uses a strategically placed camera in several different locations that record your motion, which is linked to a computer. Once accustomed to the treadmill, you will then walk and or run depending on your current activity levels for us so the computer can video minute movements of the foot, ankle, knee, hip etc. The movement of the underlying bones are calculated using a model. This gives us a visual image of your joint movements which will help us plan your treatment.
We use gait analysis and other biomechanical techniques to create custom orthotics to help treat your lower limb pain.
