Your foot affects your gait all the way up to your hips and low back.
Healthy feet and proper gait are at the root of healthy joints.
PODIATRY physical complaints can arise from position deviation or dysfunction of the foot. This can lead to a changed gait, which in turn affects the foot, ankle, knee, hip, or low back. In this case, investigation of the root cause is essential to proper remedy.
Healthy feet and ankles are especially critical for any athlete, at any level, in any sport. That is just as true whether you are a professionally or an amateur. Being able to move powerfully, gracefully, and efficiently is important in any athletic endeavor.
Amsterdam Clinics provides a foot scan in the Foot Lab, and a fully computerized gait analysis to bring any flaws to light and help us identify the appropriate countermeasures and medical treatment and provide gait training and podiatric soles made in the Netherlands, whenever needed.
The core component of a gait analysis at the Amsterdam Clinics is a segmental foot assessment and pressure mapping. This is much more in-depth than walking on a treadmill at a shoe store and videotaping from the ankles down.
