Running Injury Clinic
Video Gait Analysis
Atlas Runners Injury Clinic in Tamworth and Atlas Running Injury Clinic Solihull, Birmingham offer a Video Gait Running Analysis as a stand alone service or as part of their Option 1 Orthotic fitting service. The runner has a video recording taken of walking and running phases which is analysed and recorded on a DVD. Audio input is offered with still photographs and slow motion analysis recorded.
Gait analysis is the study of human movement and locomotion. Certain types of foot motion have the potential to cause symptoms in the lower back, hips, knees, lower legs and of course feet.
There is a normal posture for the feet, knees and hips at any point during walking or running. Video gait analysis enables us to evaluate normal and abnormal movements of the joints of the lower limbs as the body moves.
Video gait analysis is an important part of the assessment; by filming you walking and/or running the practitioner is able to observe any misalignments or unusual movements during the gait cycle.
Video gait analysis is used to capture your walking/running motion to aid diagnosis and treatment of any problems, and to formulate a treatment plan.
Video gait analysis is also a great way to demonstrate what happens when you walk/run, which helps to provide you with a greater understanding as to why you are getting injured, and how to prevent it from happening.

Running gait analysis can be very useful in determining why you are picking up running injuries. Runners often cannot understand why they collect a variety of running injuries when training for long distance races such as the London Marathon, New York Marathon or even shorter distances of the Birmingham Half Marathon, Great North Run or Lichfield 10k.
If you wear orthotics or have corrected stability running shoes, it is a good idea to have a video running gait analysis done. This will show if the shoes you are wearing are correcting your running faults.
Overpronation levels can be determined and advice on running style and footwear can be offered at the Solihull Birmingham Runners Clinic.
Atlas have launched a new website www.londonmarathon-runninginjuryclinics.co.uk in support of the London Marathon. Runners who are following marathon training programmes and develop a running injury can access local sports injury clinics who specialise in running problems.
