We highly recommend that you take the time to have your bicycle fit to you by an expert. When done properly, you may spare yourself from excruciating pain and permanent injury.

Gait Analysis

Gait analysis (the study of human walking and running) is performed by qualified experts to identify problems with body movement, body mechanics, and muscle activity. The analysis is used to diagnose and treat individuals with conditions that affect their ability to walk or run. Gait analysis is especially helpful in optimizing athletic performance, speeding recovery from injury, and correcting chronic health issues such as:

 

Overpronation

Oversupination

Increased Q angle

Hip hiking (or hitching)

Ankle equinus

Pelvic tilt

 

If you suffer from certain overuse injuries that are associated with poor biomechanics, you may benefit from gait analysis. Such injuries include:
 

Shin splints

Plantar fasciitis

Runners knee

Jumpers knee

Patello-femoral knee pain

Achilles tendonitis

Lower back pain
