Gait Analysis involves walking or running on a treadmill under the watchful eye of Kristina. A video recorder will also be utilized to capture your walking and running style. She will analyze the way you move, closely observing your feet, ankles, knees and hips. Kristina can then show you what is happening to your joints at the different phases in your walking and running motion using slow motion video and freeze frame. Kristina can identify areas of weakness and poor biomechanics and then develop a corrective program to improve your running performance and reduce your risk of injury.
