Also called: Running Injury Gait Analysis
The 3D gait analysis system captures motion using three high-speed, infrared-strobe cameras that deliver three-dimensional views of the runner’s motion. Therapists can then compare the runner’s data to norms drawn from a massive and continually expanding database of lower-body motion being collected at clinics around the world. Then, they collaborate with the orthopedic physician to create an individualized therapy plan. The goal is the get the runner back to pain-free running.
Why Choose 3D Gait Analysis
Running injury gait analysis is specifically designed for a runner’s needs. The goal is to help you rapidly recover from your current running-related injury and reduce the risk of future running injuries.
Each patient is treated by a multi-disciplinary team of doctors and physical therapists that work together to identify causes of running-related injuries. Then, the patient receives an individualized treatment plan based on a comprehensive history, physical examination, appropriate imaging, 3D Gait analysis, and physical therapy evaluation.
What to Expect
Your analysis will take place in a few steps:
- You will have an office visit with a sports medicine physician who will obtain a running and medical history, perform a physical examination, and order and review appropriate imaging studies.
- Then, you will have a physical therapy evaluation including 3D Gait analysis.
- Once results are back, you will meet with your provider and have a discussion of the findings, recommendations, and a prescription for a treatment plan.
- You will have follow-up visits to assess results and make additional recommendations as needed.
What to Wear
For the physical therapy evaluation and 3D Gait analysis, you will need to bring/wear:
- Tight-fitting non-reflective athletic clothing
- Running shoes without orthotics
