Our Video Gait Analysis Program includes a complete biomechanical assessment of the trunk and lower body, a functional movement assessment, and videotaped gait analysis on the treadmill. It will also include instruction on ideal walking/running mechanics, posture and cadence with a personalized exercise program to begin at home.
The comprehensive evaluation starts with a thorough history. We want to understand the problem from your point of view. Next is a comprehensive assessment of the lower body to determine how the foot, ankle, knee, hip and spine all connect. Finally, we will video tape you from multiple angles while walking and running on our treadmill. Be sure to bring shorts, running/walking shoes and any orthotics you have been prescribed. Once the exam is complete, a physical therapist will review the video with you and perform a frame-by-frame evaluation of your gait and walking/running mechanics. A home exercise program will be given based on the findings from the analysis. Any recommendations and pertinent still-frame images will be sent to your e-mail address to allow for future reference.
I had the pleasure of interacting with the entire staff in Cutlerville during my treatment. Everyone made the recovery process very tolerable, despite the “fears” of therapy that we patients/clients go through.Joe
