In order to understand the cause of running injuries sophisticated and precise biomechanical analysis must be conducted. This type of evaluation includes a computerized gait analysis that utilizes a state of the art motion analysis laboratory. The motion analysis laboratory includes : specialized treadmill, 3D video analysis system with special software, surface electromyography system and ground reaction force plate.
Gait analysis allows to quantitative and qualitative assessment of all the data collected.
The information from the structural assessment, the biomechanics, the injury history and gait analysis data then integrated together in order to plan the best course of treatment for this patient. From this analysis, recommendations are typically made in the following areas:
