Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is a non-invasive diagnostic method for in-depth examination and assessment of the way we walk or run.

This complex analysis is best carried out by qualified podiatrists, who use their training in human bio-mechanics for making accurate assessments of your movement. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to see one of our podiatrists at the Active Foot Care Podiatry for gait analysis, simply contact us to arrange an appointment.

Some typical biomechanical disorders we observe include:

  • Excessive pronation
  • Over supination
  • Ankle instability
  • Pelvic tilt
  • Poor shock absorption
  • Leg length discrepancies
  • Unusual walking / running patterns

Our podiatrists have a special interest in sports podiatry and find gait analysis a particularly useful tool for assessing running bio-mechanics.

Some common foot and injuries include:

  • Shin splints (lower leg pain)
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Ankle sprain
  • Knee pain
  • Stress fractures



Once our podiatrists have assessed your walking or running pattern, they will then plan corrective treatment to iron out the biomechanical faults.

Treatment may include:

  • Custom-made orthotics
  • Footwear advice
  • Strengthening and stretching exercises
  • Technique and training advice
