During a Running Gait Analysis, Peal Sports Performance Coaching will observe you walking or running on a track or treadmill, looking in particular at the positioning of your feet, ankles, knees, and hips during stance and in motion. Using motion capture analysis software, We will record and analyze your movement through the whole gait cycle. Slow motion and freeze framing are used to carefully assess your running, sprinting and/or walking style. However, locomotion is only part of the story. We also rely on functional movement assessments to dig even deeper into the etiology of performance glitches
