Video Gait Analysis

Prevent Injuries, Decrease Pain & Improve Performance

Your examination will be performed by a licensed physical therapist that is specifically trained in the evaluation and treatment of running athletes. This testing will also include state-of-the-art video analysis to identify any biomechanical issues that can be corrected with an individualized home program, proper shoes, and education.

Our Running and Video Gait Analysis programs are headed by Brent Betzold MSPT, MTC, a physical therapist with 14 years of experience and a runner himself. Brent has experience competing in road races including marathons and triathlons from sprints to full Ironman distances.

The Video Gait Analysis will include a complete lower body and trunk biomechanical evaluation looking at strength, flexibility, joint motion, balance, and body awareness. Following the comprehensive physical examination, a videotaped gait analysis will be conducted. The video will be analyzed using specialized software to break down each portion of your gait cycle from multiple angles.
