If you have an injury related to sport or running, then we would recommend that you book for a Sports Assessment. This is an in depth 60min assessment which will take into consideration medical, injury and training history, a specialist musculoskeletal examination and 2D video gait analysis. This allows the Podiatrist to diagnose your problem and put in place the most appropriate treatment plan to get you back to your chosen sport or activity as quickly and safely as possible.
3D gait analysis
We are the only private clinic in Scotland to offer this truly state of the art assessment. 3D gait analysis uses infrared cameras to accurately measure the positions of markers attached to a person’s legs. This data is used to create a 3D model and sophisticated software then calculates joint angles and velocities at the pelvis, hip, knee and ankle. These values are compared to a database so that the person’s unique biomechanical profile can be calculated. Additional measures of the person’s flexibility, strength and alignment can also be compared to the database, enabling a clinician to determine the cause of any abnormal biomechanical function and optimise the treatment plan.
Run 3D Silver assessment £165
This is most suitable for patients who have been referred to us for gait analysis by another healthcare professional, who has already carried out their own clinical examination of their patient. The assessment includes a medical history to discuss any musculoskeletal issues, your activity levels/training and your general health. This is followed by an objective 3D gait analysis of you walking/running on the treadmill. You will receive a detailed written report of your running gait, identifying biomechanical issues, asymmetries and performance indicators, which will be discussed with you and shared with your therapist. If appropriate, a rehabilitation programme to address any issues identified will be recommended.
