Improving Performance & Reducing Pain
Running & walking is not just a straightforward movement. It is complex and incorporates rotational movements, lateral movements, and vertical movements. To the naked eye it can be challenging, and overwhelming, to observe this all at once.
During a Video Gait Analysis your therapist will identify weakness or impalances in your body and you’ll work together to optimize your form.
During the video running analysis we look at:
Base of support
Balance Fall Risk Program
We test our patients using the B Track technology, using a balance platform. This technology generates a score of a persons fall risk based on their age and matched against thousands of their peers. We periodically re-test track the improvement of your score. Our program consists of a combination of strength and balance re-education.We achieve this using the only truly reactive technology on the market, the Proprio 5000, which provides an unpredictable stimulus, like real life! We also focus on ankle and toe strength significantly shown to reduce fall risks. Annual testing is recommended for anyone over the age of 65 so that we can prevent catastrophic incidents and their drastic consequences. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
