Functional Gait Assessment
A Gait Assessment is performed with each client in addition to a Functional Movement Assessment to further analyze their movement patterns of choice. Asymmetries or dysfunctions found in our gait, are usually found in our functional movement patterns too.
Why use Gait Assessment?
Katie has had extensive training in analyzing gait from head to toe.
It often reveals muscular imbalances or joint restrictions. It's something we do without thinking, all day long!

Gait + Pain
Often times pain does not show up when we are walking.
However, our bodies have found compensations for muscular imbalances, joint restrictions, or fear avoidance.
