Gait Diagnostics and Therapy Expert gait analysis on the path to pain relief
Walking is the most natural thing in the world – and how we walk has a major impact on our musculoskeletal system. This becomes clearly evident when the wrong moves in our walking patterns lead to long-term damage and pain. Discovered early, you – in consultation with our therapists – will be able to do something about it.
Step by step
Gait analysis provides a valuable foundation for additional forms of therapy. If you are dealing with hip problems, painful movement or poor posture, gait diagnostics – through various measuring processes – make it possible to detect changes in gait patterns whilst highlighting specific causes.
