Gait Analysis: Computer & Video Analysis of Walking

Currently we are one of only a handful in the entire United States to offer Computerized and Video Analysis of Walking. Through a sophisticated network of computer sensors placed on the bottom of the feet and multiple video cameras to record the walking process, abnormal foot function can be critically evaluated and its influence on other parts of the body determined. The ability to show problems caused by the foot in motion means even more accurate diagnosis and treatment of foot and related conditions.

The benefits of Gait Analysis range from relief of pain to the slowing of degenerative conditions and the prevention of specific muscle, bone and joint problems at remote sites. In fact, through early detection, the need for certain surgical procedures on the foot and other areas of the body such as the lower back, knees, hips, etc. can often be postponed, if not eliminated.

Gait Analysis is also utilized in the evaluation of balance and stability issues. Difficulties related to balance and stability are often related to walking aberrations and this issue can be very important in keeping people safe when they are on their feet, particularly the elderly.

Experience the merging of caring, science and technology.

A vast majority of all lower back, hip and knee problems not caused by congenital conditions or injury are actually related to abnormal foot function. Computerized and Video Analysis of Walking can detect foot-related postural problems that can lead to knee, leg, hip, back, shoulder and neck pain. Even some headaches and jaw pain are caused by such postural problems.
Computer sensors gather an incredible amount of information in order to measure pressure points, problem areas and assess abnormal foot functions.
Video cameras record the walking process. Strategic camera placements simultaneously view different angles of the body in motion. This allows for detailed slow motion analysis and critical evaluation.
All computer and video information is analyzed to isolate foot and related problems, and formulate appropriate treatment methods.

Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a disorder that can come from many sources including medical disorders such as Diabetes, environmental sources such as long term toxic chemical exposure, side effects of taking certain medications and surgical procedures, particularly back surgeries.

This condition is very difficult to treat and often cannot be resolved. Today many drugs are prescribed for these conditions to help alleviate symptoms of the neuropathy. 

Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they are not, but they always have the potential for giving the patient significant side effects.

My practice utilizes nutritional supplements and vitamins; as well as targeted and special medication compounds that are applied locally (no potential toxic pills used) to work at alleviating symptoms of neuropathy, often with satisfactory results.
