Gait Analysis Adelaide | AC Podiatry Are the Movement Specialists

Our Podiatrist in Adelaide Welcomes You

What Is Gait analysis?

Gait analysis Adelaide covers the full scope of human motion. In other language, it could be described as dynamic observation. We measure your movements, mechanics, and muscle activity to ensure everything’s optimally functioning. This service is often required for professional athletes who need stringent progress monitoring. If there’s potential for better flexibility and movement, the team at AC Podiatry will provide additional services to help you reach your full potential. This might be achieved through mobilisation/manual therapy, orthoses, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, or referrals to other health professionals. Even something as simple as walking can be improved to balance your body weight and reduce the pressure/tension. However, it’s then important to understand that your walking and running mechanics are entirely different from one another. That’s exactly why you need professional help! Our diagnostic and problem-solving abilities make us the best in the business. Come see us for your Gait analysis Adelaide.

The impact of Gait analysis Adelaide

Gait Analysis Adelaide is an effective way to locate the source of your pain. It’s particularly important to follow up if you’ve suffered from an injury, as this can permanently impact your foot structure. Once your physical health starts to decline, so can your mental health. It’s incredibly frustrating for our clients when they feel restricted in their ability to do everyday things. The domino effect continues, because inactivity will also increase your chances of ending up with Cardiovascular health issues. When we undertake Gait analysis, there are few different aspects of your movement that we monitor. These are:

  • Step time
  • Center of force
  • Weight distribution
  • Stride length
  • Swing time
  • And the amount of force behind each step.

We have to work closely with our clients to figure out where the problem lies. Seek professional help today and let your gait analysis Adelaide determine the next course of action!

Our additional services

In addition to our Gait analysis Adelaide, we also provide a number of different services to help you get back on your feet.

Dry needling: Similar to acupuncture, we insert thin needles into the myfascial trigger points to increase the muscle’s Analgesia production—which enables them to relax.

Paediatric Podiatry: Children require a different kind of podiatric care, as their feet are still in development. Our specialists

Diabetic foot care: Poorly controlled diabetes can result in nerve damage, and poor circulation. This means that any injuries you obtain will take longer to heal, and infections might even go unnoticed. You should check in with your podiatrist every 6 months in case intervention is necessary. We also deal with a range of skin and nail issues such as warts, ingrown nails, corns, calluses, and provide general care.
