What is gait analysis?
Gait analysis is an important tool to study the movement patterns of the human body. With the help of gait analysis, we can determine whether a patient has a healthy or pathological gait pattern. Gait analysis also allows us to determine the causes of pain and/or movement disorders and develop individualized treatment plans for our patients.
Gait analysis is a valuable tool for orthopedists and physical therapists who use it to diagnose and treat movement disorders to help patients improve their physique and movement.
Medical gait analysis can be used to draw conclusions about the following complaints:
The physiotherapist as a posture teacher
Our physiotherapists are responsible for the implementation of the posture school. Patients are closely instructed in the exercises and the correct execution of the exercises is monitored. The aim of the posture school is to improve patients’ posture and prevent them from back pain and other possible physical ailments – due to a non-optimal movement pattern. Our physical therapists are specially trained and have a broad knowledge of posture and back health. We advise our patients individually and help them solve postural problems.
The symptoms of stuck movement patterns
Stuck movement patterns can cause a variety of symptoms. There is often pain in the affected areas. Movement may be limited and the affected areas may become inflamed or swollen. In severe cases, paralysis or even paraplegia can occur.
Such movement patterns can also lead to nervous system disorders. This can lead to a change in sensory perception, impaired concentration, or even psychosis.
Treatment of stuck movement patterns
Treatment of stuck movement patterns depends on their severity. In most cases, we can always relieve the symptoms with our physiotherapy treatment or occupational therapy. In severe cases, it may be necessary to take medication or undergo surgery.
Can a gait analysis course be remedied with the posture school?
Gait analysis is an important tool to improve posture. Many people suffer from poor posture, often caused by a bad gait. By analyzing your gait, we will help you identify the causes of poor posture and find the right treatment.
With our gait analysis course we help you to improve your posture. During our treatment appointments, we will show you a series of exercises to help improve your gait. These exercises will also help you eliminate pain and other problems.
The gait school specializes in learning an ideal gait pattern, depending on the patient’s anatomy and physical condition. Misalignments of the gait can lead to pain and damage throughout the body – especially in the Back , Basin and in the Kneeling . During therapy, the patient is trained to achieve a relaxed, balanced and rhythmically ideal gait pattern. A healthy gait prevents age-related diseases and pain, such as back and pelvic problems, and strengthens one’s own body awareness in such a way that movements in everyday life can be performed more consciously and gently.
Lying Malfunctions of the gait due to injuries, operations or illnesses, gait sequences are systematically and specifically trained so that maximum walking performance can be achieved. If necessary, the gait school works with aids such as underarm supports or walking bars to keep the physical strain to a minimum. The goal is to learn to move around independently or with assistance, so that independence in everyday life can be restored.
A conscious awareness of the body, integrated in life, is a form of independence and with the right gait posture any everyday life can be mastered.
Posture school in Berlin Mitte
Whether at work, at home or during leisure time – correct posture is the be-all and end-all. A large proportion of the population complains of back pain or tension in the neck, shoulders, knees or pelvis. Rigid sitting in the office, heavy physical labor, stress or learned postures and patterns can lead to years of damage that cannot be easily reversed. Acquiring a correct posture goes preventively against pain and tension. A body is stable and healthy in the long term when an upright posture, healthy dynamics, and gentle or supportive movements are integrated into everyday life.
The Posture School includes individualized training that specializes in physiologically healthy posture and optimal use of the back muscles. In the process, body awareness is trained in such a way that movements such as carrying, lifting or walking can be consciously performed in a way that is appropriate for the back. Pain and tension, especially in the back, shoulder and neck area, can have various causes. Depending on the profession, stress factor and individual physical condition, a whole-body balance should be found. How does correct sitting, standing and walking work, which exercises and breathing techniques help to release tension, which muscles need to be activated or relaxed?
Once the correct posture is acquired, pain and tension caused by stress, plant, habituation or age, for example, are avoided. If the body feels good, the mind can also relax and floats more easily through everyday life.
Heel pain is a very common problem that affects many people. It is usually a dull or sharp pain felt in the heels and often occurs when walking or standing. The causes of heel pain can vary widely, ranging from improper shoe choice to injury to certain medical conditions. In many cases, however, the pain can be treated with physical therapy, massage and targeted exercises.
The heel spur is a small, hard bony prominence on the heel. It results from hardening of the bone and can be very painful. Many people suffer from heel spurs and seek help from orthopedists or podiatrists. Treatment of heel spur usually consists of shoe inserts, physiotherapy and ultrasound treatments. In severe cases, the spur must be surgically removed.
Bunion pain often occurs in people who stand or walk on their feet a lot. Symptoms include pain and/or burning in the balls of the feet. This can be very uncomfortable and cause sufferers to limit their activities. In many cases, however, bunion pain can be treated successfully. See a doctor first to make sure it is not a serious condition. Afterwards, you can try to relieve your symptoms with pain medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Foot baths with a mild soap can also bring relief. If these measures are not enough, you can book an appointment for treatment with us.
Splayfoot discomfort can be very uncomfortable. Many people suffer from pain and discomfort in the legs, feet and ankles. Splayfoot is a foot deformity in which the toes extend outward (or inward) and the sole of the foot is pointed. This can lead to pain, difficulty walking or standing, and other discomfort. To treat splayfoot, there are several options. First, you should see your doctor to get the right treatment. In many cases, it is recommended to wear orthopedic insoles to correct the foot position. Exercises and physiotherapy can also help.
Achilles tendon pain
Achilles tendon pain can be a very uncomfortable experience. The Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body and connects the ankle joint to the fibula. If this tendon is overloaded or subjected to too much stress, pain can occur in the Achilles tendon. Achilles tendon pain is often the result of improper training or poor equipment. To relieve the pain, you should immobilize and cool the affected area. A visit to the doctor is not necessary in most cases, but if the pain does not subside within a few days, you should see a doctor.
Knee pain can have many causes. They are often the result of an injury, but arthritis or other conditions can also cause knee pain. The pain can be mild to severe and in some cases may radiate to other areas of the body. If you suffer from knee pain, you should always consult a doctor to determine the exact cause. Then the right treatment can be initiated. In many cases, knee pain can be relieved with medication or physical therapy. In more severe cases, surgery may also be necessary.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful injury that occurs primarily in the heel area. The plantar fascia is a ligament that extends from the heel spur to the ball of the foot. In plantar fasciitis, this ligament is either overstretched or injured, resulting in pain. Most people with plantar fasciitis report pain that worsens, especially in the morning when they get up. This is because the fascia is somewhat relaxed during the night and then stretches again when you get up. Plantar fasciitis can be treated by taking pressure off the foot and taking anti-inflammatory medications. In more severe cases, it may be necessary to operate on the affected tissue.
