Advanced Assessment and Analysis Bolton

Gait Analysis

A Gait Analysis assesses the way you walk, using the lastest innovative technology, pressure plate analysis we can identify abnormal foot pressures and movements during the footstep that are not visible to the eye, helping to diagnose lower limb conditions.

A Gait Analysis provides the data for a truly custom made orthotics designed around how you move and connect to the surface. 

Why Is A Gait Analysis Important?

A Gait Analysis gives an important visual of the subtle movements of the feet, when a small problem develops there is a knock-on effect as the body adapts and compensates, this modifies posture and movement effecting how you walk and run. This can lead to more serious problems.

The use of orthotics (insoles that support and stabilise) combined with rehabilitation exercise are able to address the compensation patterns and balance the uneven tensions on the joints and muscles.Our Bio-Mechanical assessment allows us to define a baseline for helping functional correction with a rehabilitation plan to achieve recovery and improve performance.

Our clinic sees a large range of patients of different ages who need to resolve foot issues with orthotics, that work with their shoes, an orthotic which is comfortable and durable. And whilst we see a lot of runners, footballer, golfers and walkers we also see patients who are diabetic,  are looking for comfort and insoles that reduced pressure sores and prevent deterioration of foot related problems.
