Postural Assessment & Gait Analysis
Have you ever caught your reflection in a shop window and thought... 'My shoulders are hunched', 'my neck is sticking out' or other weird observations? Each and every one of us are different. We are based on the same mould but may vary enormously depending upon what we do.
Postural assessment looks at those individual differences to find ones 'normal' and then looks to see where there has been deviation from that normal. We are sometimes born with imbalances or they can develop from repeated actions like sitting at a computer or playing a sport using our dominant side.
Gait analysis looks at our posture and biomechanics during movement. All assessments highlight where these findings may be the cause of pain and dysfunction or have prevented us from being at our optimal best. Thus allowing advice to be given and treatment to take place to then correct these imbalances.
