Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. It is also commonly used in sports to help athletes run and move more efficiently by identifying movement-related problems.


Through school and play, kids can put a lot of stress and strain through their feet. Many parents are concerned about their kids’ flat feet, or the way they walk. Our Podiatrists can advise, reassure and provide treatments for your child’s foot pain.
