Run & Gait Analysis

Run Analysis

The world has complicated running. Learning a few key components will optimize a healthy, happy run.

If you’re a runner you’ve probably read and heard SOOO many fad approaches. Here’s a few:

  • Maintain “xyz” cadence
  • Don’t heel strike, only forefoot strike
  • Kick your heel toward your butt to engage your hamstrings
  • Tuck your pelvis under when climbing a hill

Here’s the deal. We didn’t make up anatomy or body mechanics. And, when you consider how the body was designed, there are 4 main elements needed to return to happy, healthy running.

  • Lean Into the Wind
  • Propel from Your Glutes
  • Pump Your Arms
  • Rotate

Most people teach running from the foot to hip. It makes absolutely no sense on how the body is organized. You must have trunk stability for foot mobility. Meaning, you must have an active and stable core before you even think about striking your foot to the ground.

Gait Analysis

Gait is a very high function that requires attention and practice to return to normal.

Most of us don’t think about how we walk until our ability to walk is altered. There are many factors that contribute to a healthy gait, but the main elements required are:

  • Balance
  • Core Stability
  • Ankle + Foot Mobility
  • Pelvic Dissociation
  • Spinal Rotation
  • Hip Extension from the Glute
