3D Gait analysis & Running Injuries

The incidence of running related injuries is extremely high. This is due to the repetitive nature of running and the result of excessive accumulation of ground reaction forces with every step.  3D gait analysis can help you to reduce your injury risk by identifying factors that could be compromising your movement patterns. If you already have an injury, 3D analysis can help to pinpoint the root cause to your problem so you can begin to effectively rehabilitate your injury.
