Gait Analysis Physiotherapy and Assessment

At Versa Movement Collective, you don't need to be an elite athlete to get gold-star treatment. Whether you're a competitive runner or a jogging enthusiast, you can benefit from getting a running gait analysis near you.

 

Examining your gait helps you better understand your body's biomechanical makeup, so you can learn how to move better and prevent injuries from occurring. That way, you can enjoy your sport pain-free, for many years to come. 

 

Conducting a gait analysis is also beneficial for assessing injuries and posture. When we have an accurate depiction of how your body is moving, we can begin to structure a customized treatment plan to improve your sports performance, posture, and recovery time. 

 

If you're looking for physiotherapy near you, you've landed on one of the most dependable clinics in the South Calgary area that is committed to optimizing your overall wellness.

What is Gait Analysis?

Everyone has unique patterns of movement and posture. These patterns influence your athletic performance and risk of injury. 

 

At VersaMC in SW Calgary, we use state-of-the-art assessment equipment to understand how your body moves and how to optimize your performance. We'll analyze your stability, strength, flexibility, and overall mobility to determine precisely what it takes for you to improve as an athlete. 

 

Our physiotherapists use an integrated approach to address your range of motion. Team Versa's gait analysis uses wearable technology to assess the way your body moves at various levels of activity. 

 

We take a close look at your movement patterns when you:

  • Walk

  • Squat

  • Run

  • Push

  • Pull

  • Lunge

Through this careful analysis of your movement habits, we can take a look at what muscle groups may be overcompensating for weaker areas, causing tension and potential injury. We can then show you new ways of moving and exercising to build strength where you need it.

Why Choose Versa Movement Collective?

Is Gait Analysis Worth It?

Anyone can stand to benefit from comprehensive gait analysis. 

 

Gait assessment is key to understanding the complex ways your body moves. Without proper gait analysis, you'll never know how to optimize your running or sports performance. Worse yet, you're at a higher risk of getting injured.

 

These biomechanical analyses are also useful if you're experiencing soreness in your neck, lower back, chest or really anywhere you feel like your body is "breaking down." 

 

You may be experiencing these aches and strains due to overcompensating muscle groups for weaker areas, either from previous injuries or a lack of activation.

 

Save yourself from the frustration of performance plateaus and the pain of running injuries by coming in to have your gait analyzed using our advanced methods. Our running physiotherapy experts have experience working with athletes of all skill levels, so we can help you no matter your unique needs.
