How is a gait analysis helpful?

A gait analysis can be especially helpful for runners and athletes, and can even help those who struggle with soreness and pain from walking.

We evaluate everything about the way you stride—where your feet land, whether you use the inside or outside of your foot, the angle of your knee at impact, etc.—in order to detect biomechanical trouble spots so that they can be fixed.

If you suffer from frequent running-related issues—sore knees, shin splints, stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, etc.—there’s a good chance a gait analysis can identify an underlying cause and help you find a solution, whether that be exercises, physical therapy, orthotics, or teaching yourself a new stride.

To learn more about what analyzing your gait can do for you, call Victoria L. Melhuish at (775) 783-8037. You can schedule an appointment at our office in Carson City or in Gardnerville, NV by phone or through this website.
