Gait Analysis for Injury Prevention


In most cases running injuries are unilateral, with pain presented asymmetrically. With an imbalanced stress load on the right vs left legs, imbalanced bio-mechanics are likely present and for this reason a thorough analysis of the entire kinetic chain (the movement patterns of the entire body) is conducted. Below lists components of the Gait Analysis for Injury Prevention:

Primary tests and components:

arch movement and girth measurements
static posture assessment
flexibility/mobility
symmetry of mechanics on Optogait
nueromuscular control
trunk, hip, and knee stability
right to left strength comparisons

Allow 75 minutes for your appointment. Be sure to read the day of logisitics no later than 2 days before your analysis.

CAP


After the testing is completed the results will be reviewed and your Corrective Actions Program will be sent via email in 1-2 business days. Our goal is that each athlete has a clear direction on what they need to do to improve, thus unlimited email/phone support is provided for the first 4 weeks after your analysis.

Re-test


In most cases you will have new habits, routines, and exercises to begin encorporating into your program. In most cases expect 3-6 weeks for noteable improvement. When you have made sufficient progress with the Corrective Actions Program, a 30-40 minute re-test will be scheduled to ensure improvement is being made and to make adjustments as needed.

Gait Analysis for Performance


Correct training, proper nutrition, availability to train, genetics and pyschological disposition are key factors that contribute to a runners performance. For some, though, improper and inefficient running form serves as constant barrier to progress. This gait analysis is intended for runners who are injury free and are interested in learning whether or not holisitic adjustments in their gait (such as force output, direction of force, range of motion, stride rate) are needed, and if so, how to improve upon these. Below lists components of the Gait Analysis for Performance:

Primary tests and components:

outdoor video recordings at varying angles and speeds
indoor treadmill video
strength and stability tests
power and muscle stiffness tests
symmetry of mechanics on Optogait

Gait Analysis for Injury Prevention and Performance


This is BRC's most complete analysis, combining the tests and assessments of the Injury Prevention and Performance protocols. Participants are expected to be healthy and able to run pain-free, as well as conduct more dynamic movements such as jumping, squatting, lateral running, etc.

Primary tests and components:

arch movement and girth measurements
static posture assessment
flexibility/mobility
symmetry of mechanics on Optogait
nueromuscular control
trunk, hip, and knee stability
right to left strength comparisons
power and muscle stiffness tests
indoor treadmill video
outdoor video recordings at varying angles and speeds

Soccer- Lacrosse - Field Hockey


Having a quick first step, change of direction, and top-end speed are critical components of a successful player. With this analysis the athlete goes through specific testing to decipher if and what components of their fitness is below the norm and needs to be addressed. From these results the athlete is given a customized corrective action plan designed to improve the results of the tests and thus the speed, explosiveness, and agility in a game situation.

Primary tests and components:

static posture assessment
flexibility/mobility
symmetry of mechanics on Optogait
leg stiffness
vertical and horizontal power output
T-test and Illinois agility tests
40 yard sprint with first 10 yard, and flying 20 yard analysis

In most cases you will have new habits, routines, and exercises to begin encorporating into your program. In most cases expect 3-6 weeks for noteable improvement. Re-testing (see below) is encouraged to ensure progress is being made, and to provide needed adjustments or 'next-level' concepts and exercises.

Military


This analysis is for those looking to improve their time in the running test, in order to attain or retain status in the US Armed Forces or other civic position. When the analysis is complete, and the corrective actions program is provided, participants should plan for and expect at least 12 weeks for marked improvement in their performance.

Primary tests and components:

static posture assessment
flexibility/mobility
symmetry of mechanics on Optogait
basic single leg stability and stiffness
run test - participants can choose from 800 meter, 1.5 mile, 2 mile or 3 mile test
program discussion and 12 week daily training schedule

On the day of your analysis be sure you are feeling fresh and ready, so avoid anything strenuous the day of or day before. Be sure to wear short, tight clothes if possible and wear the same or similar shoes that you would wear during your employer's fitness test. Allow 75 minutes for the analysis.

12 week program


After the testing is completed you will receive a 12 week daily program outlining the specific runs you are to complete. Allow up to 2 business days to receive this program. A 10-15 min phone call is provided with your administrator to discuss this program.

homework


Along with the 12 week program, ancillary exercises will also be given based on the results of your analysis. This often entails daily work or habits to help build an injury-resistant and more efficient gait pattern.
