Running gait analysis requires a comprehensive evaluation by a physical therapist. This analysis includes postural, joint mobility, strength assessment by a physical therapist, as well as motion analysis that provide information in sagittal (side), frontal (front) and posterior (back) views. This is perfect for someone who would like to get back to walking/hiking after injuries or surgeries to their spine or lower extremities, or someone who has pain or discomfort when walking or hiking. This is performed by a physical therapist and personalized instruction will be given based on the evaluation and the motion analysis.
*Physical therapist will determine if you benefit from 3D analysis. However, most gait analysis will be done in 2D without LED markers.
Through the LED/2-D method that’s used, I was able to see where my ITB pain originates from and how to correct the problem. The high-speed cameras identified issues that I never knew about. I would recommend this assessment to any runner for a safer and more effective style of running.
