Do you feel that you walk “funny?” Has someone told you that you look lopsided when you run or walk?
No two humans are alike. We talk differently, look different, and of course we walk and run differently. However, if you are experiencing pain or discomfort when walking or running, let’s check it out!
At the start of your appointment, your Physical Therapist will go over your medical history and perform a series of tests and measurements to assess your balance, strength, and range of motion. These measurements and assessments will help us come up with a game plan.
After the evaluation, we will have you walk or run on the treadmill. We will take slow-motion video and analyze just how your body is moving. Then, we will cast it on a big screen to allow you to see exactly what we are seeing.
From there, we may give you a few quick tips to try on the treadmill again. We will also give you personalized exercises and tips to perform at home on your own time to make sure the muscle memory builds up. You’ll soon start to see your walking or running pattern improve!
