Gait Analysis at Precision Chiropractic and Rehab

What is Gait Analysis?

Gait analysis is a detailed examination of the way you walk or run. It involves assessing the biomechanics of your movements to identify abnormalities or inefficiencies that could be contributing to pain, injury, or reduced performance. Using state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Chelsea Hollingsworth evaluates your gait to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

How Does Gait Analysis Work?

During a gait analysis session at Precision Chiropractic and Rehab, Dr. Hollingsworth will:

  1. Observe and Record Your Movement: Using advanced video and motion capture technology, your walking or running patterns are recorded from multiple angles.
  2. Assess Biomechanics: Dr. Hollingsworth analyzes the footage to assess how your body moves during each phase of the gait cycle, focusing on joint angles, stride length, and overall posture.
  3. Identify Issues: The analysis helps pinpoint any abnormalities or inefficiencies in your gait, such as overpronation, underpronation, or improper alignment.
  4. Develop a Treatment Plan: Based on the findings, Dr. Hollingsworth creates a tailored plan that may include specific exercises, stretches, and recommendations for footwear or orthotics to correct and improve your gait.
