The biomechanical study of gait (also known as biomechanical study of the foot or study of the tread) is a diagnostic and functional test that evaluates how our feet, knees, hips, and spine behave when we are in static and dynamic, assessing possible alterations and pathological compensations through the most advanced technology on the market.
The test consists of four phases:
– Patient history:
- It is essential to know what is happening, since when it happens, how the problem originated and the evolution it has had over time, where it appeared and finally what is the degree of pain or disability it causes.
– Examination on a stretcher of the structures and joints of the lower extremities.
– Static postural analysis using next generation baropodometric pressure platforms.
– Analysis of gait on a treadmill.
- This point is extremely important since there are pathologies that are shown or the symptoms are magnified when walking or running.
