Gait Analysis

Optimise your running or walking with the expert help of MGS’ physiotherapists, located at our North Curl Curl clinic on Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Gait analysis provides a comprehensive movement assessment and treatment utilising cutting-edge ZEBRIS Force Distribution Treadmill technology.

Gait Analysis

What is it?

Advanced running analysis

Optimise your running style, pace, technique and performance using the same cutting edge technology and programs that many elite athletes receive during training.

Knee and hip replacement surgery

Assessment of gait and posture has been scientifically proven to help patients avoid or delay replacement surgery. If surgery is required, this treatment will help you get the best possible result.

Gait analysis for kids

Maximise your child’s potential. This system can help young athletes by assessing, identifying and correcting any developmental delays.

Injury prevention and rehab

A full assessment of how you walk, run and move can help identify any faulty movements or weakness. Once these issues are isolated, they can be accurately targeted and fixed.

Back, knee and heel pain

Gait abnormalities can affect numerous areas of the body. Following analysis, your tailored treatment and rehabilitation plan can be “laser-guided” in order to reduce pain.

Gait analysis is the clinical evaluation of an individual’s movement for both diagnosis and performance enhancement

This treatment involves assessing the biomechanical pattern of your running and walking technique. The technology, in combination with clinical expertise, provides the opportunity to identify core movement issues, optimise athletic performance, prevent recurring injuries and accelerate recovery from existing injuries or surgery. This technique is commonly used to get to the root cause of any existing inefficiencies or inhibiting conditions.

Benefits

Gain invaluable insight into your walking and running technique.

Boost performance, minimise injury and resolve any existing movement issues. Identify the true cause of problems or inefficiencies and learn techniques to help correct unhealthy movement patterns.

Method

The first session will begin with a comprehensive history of your training, goals and injuries as well as an analysis of your strength, joint flexibility and functional movement. The therapist will then assess your technique on a specially designed treadmill using video and force plate data to analyse your unique way of moving.

Results

Improvements to running and walking techniques can often be felt immediately, particularly with overuse injuries or conditions which require small, specific changes to reduce pain. Other changes can be felt in the following 6-12 weeks. These results require a commitment to integrating exercises into your daily routine and will ultimately lead to a reduced risk of future injury.

Post treatment

Depending on your individual needs, you may need to attend follow-up sessions in order to help you reach your goals. If you decide to take on a new challenge (like a marathon, triathlon or Ironman), you may also want to think about an individually crafted program to enhance performance.

New patients might ask us…

Can I book over the phone?

Yes! You can call find the clinic phone numbers at the very top of the page on a desktop, or in the side menu on a mobile.

You will find our Receptionists very friendly and helpful. They will find a time that suits you and make sure you know where to park, how to get there and where we are.

Do I need a doctor to refer me to you first?

You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a physiotherapist however if you do have one please bring it along. We like to communicate with your doctor and any other practitioners involved in your care.

Will you remind me that I have an appointment with you?

Yes! You will have your appointment confirmed a day or so before by text, email or telephone call – whichever you prefer.

How long will my appointment be?

Appointments are scheduled a minimum of 30 minutes apart. We find that in the majority of cases that this is the most appropriate amount of time. In more complex conditions or for multiple injuries longer appointments can be arranged.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Yes please! Any investigations or scans relating to the condition will help us understand your presentation better. Even if you just have the reports from scans they will be very helpful. Likewise any notes from other Therapists or doctors would be great. If you don’t have anything then don’t worry just bring yourself.

If you have problems related to walking or sport then please bring your runners or boots in for use to look at.

If you have a WorkCover claim or were injured at work then please bring your claim number. If you do not have a claim number but intend to get one please advise our receptionist when you arrive.

I'm running late!

Our aim is that everyone receives the attention they require and while achieving this we attempt to utilise all of our available time.  If you are running late please call ahead and our Receptionist will check with your physio to see if it is possible to still see you.  There may not be enough time to attend to your needs effectively.  If we rush you through your treatment it is at best not helpful to you and at worst unsafe.  We can simply reschedule your appointment for a later time.
