Computerised Gait Analysis in Adelaide

Technology can be very helpful to identify issues that the eye cannot always see. Gait analysis is the process of our Podiatrist’s observing your gait or walking pattern to help identify some of the underlying causes of your pain.

We commonly will utilise an iPad with gait analysis software that allows us to visually assess your gait, measure movement of your gait and slow down the movement to observe any areas of concern.

We also have available Gait Scan which is a “force platform” – a device you stand and walk on that measures forces and pressures applied to the foot. Again, it’s technology to help us identify issues that the eye may not be able to identify.

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
