FAQ

How is this different than the video I had done when I bought my running shoes?

Read Answer

At Running Analysis Online, we have a different approach to correcting gait. We have looked at thousands of runners and triathletes and one fact remains constant… the WHOLE body is a factor in running gait. NOT JUST FROM THE KNEES DOWN.

In fact majority of the gait and strength corrections we recommend address problems starting in the core and hip area.


So is the gait analysis given to me by my running shop good enough?

Yes but No.. Read More

Some information is better than no information. Just think of the “whole body” analysis as an extension what you received at the running shop. Great running shops will need to see you run before they fit you in the correct shoe, but they will not tell you about areas of:

  • Instability
  • Inflexibility
  • Muscle Imbalances
  • Possible future injuries
  • Drains on your performance

What do I do after I have my gait analyzed?

You have a few choices...

Many times your findings will consist of a list of overactive muscles, inactive muscles, and overall gait faults. From here we recommend fixing the findings by using a soft tissues specialist, an endurance sport specific trainer, and a running coach. However, if you do not have access to one we have recommended videos for you to view for a small fee which can accomplish the same task.

What type of overuse training injuries can this type of system help prevent?

Got a Pen? Here's the short list...

  • Achillies tendinitis
  • Patellar tendinitis
  • Runners Knee
  • Non-traumatic Meniscus tears
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Hamstring tightness
  • Hip issues
  • Hip flexor tightness
  • Lower back pain
  • Shin Splints

It seems like the list goes on and on but many of these overuse training injuries can primarily come from gait faults.


Is it hard to submit my video?

Nope...

No, all you need is a short clip of you running in the fashion as dictated on the sample video in an email ready format, such as a mpeg, etc. Or you can even upload to your own YouTube account and simply send us the link.

I have a running injury I can not get rid of… can this help me find out what is wrong with me?

The main point of the video assessment is for prevention of running injuries and increase in endurance event performance. Although gait analysis can help...

out in finding a diagnosis for your condition you will need to seek the care of a qualified medical provider. We would recommend an Active Release soft tissue expert as a great first stop, as they will fix many of your over-training conditions. Our affiliated company P3 Sports Care in Huntington Beach CA is an excellent resource for training injuries as well.

However, as much we would like to help you with your injury, we have a strict policy against diagnosing medical condition over the internet and phone. This video running gait analysis should NEVER be used in substitution of a medical examination. Feel free to have your medical provider contact us as we would love to give some insight into your condition through our video analysis. Direct contact through a medical facility is the only way we can help with a medical condition.

What is Gait Analysis?

Gait analysis is when a trained professional looks at your running or walking pattern and relays their findings to you. It can be performed by doctors, coaches, biomechanists, and trainers who have the appropriate training and experience. It takes a trained eye to see small problems in an athlete’s gait.

Historically it has not be considered an important part of an endurance athlete’s training program but more and more people are using the information to make themselves more mechanically sound and a more efficient and safe runner in the process. It is important to note that biomechanics can and should be assessed in all sports such as track and field, baseball, golf, swimming and so on.

Teaching an athlete what is wrong with their running mechanics is a difficult task when their are no visual tools. This is where Running Analysis Online comes in.

What we offer:

  • A way for you to visualize your gait finding
  • Suggestions of how to correct gait findings
  • A library of corrective exercise videos (for a small extra fee)
