How Do I Know if I am a good candidate for a gait analysis?
- Have you had recurring injuries that you can’t seem to get rid of?
- Are you returning to running from an injury or surgery?
- Do you want to improve your biomechanics to reduce change of future injuries?
- Do you want to optimize your performance and take running to the next level?
What is the difference between the 2D and 3D analysis?
- uses horizontal and vertical (X and Y) planes
- if turned sideways becomes a line
- example: normal video from cell phone or flat pictures
- adds the depth of (Z) dimension
- allows for rotation and visualization from multiple directions
Because the human body moves in 3 dimensions, it is important to use 3-D measures to analyze the body’s biomechanical movement patterns. If you limit yourself to 2-dimensional measures, you will miss out on vital information. With the gained knowledge of 3-D measures, we can put together a program that will allow us to change or alter your biomechanics to increase your efficiency, safety, and performance.
