We are pleased to welcome Dara Chamberlain to the RL Cinic that will offer kinesiology treatments.
Kinesiology is the scientific study of human movement, performance and function. Kinesiology incorporates the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy and physiology to prevent injury and dysfunction to improve movement and performance. Treatments could involve manual therapy, soft tissue therapy, exercise instruction and use of modalities (e.g. heat, ice and laser).
Gait Scan Analysis
The gait scan analysis by way of the Metascan, helps clinicians further evaluate patients for foot, knee, hip, low back, balance and biomechanical issues, by generating a custom report with a detailed analysis of your gait.
The analysis provides information on the Biomechanics of the foot, which is essentially how the various structures of the foot work together to perform specific functions (timing being of utmost importance). Excessive or prolonged motion or lack of motion will cause various deformities and pathologies. Proper biomechanics allow human beings to walk, run, jump and move freely without pain or dysfunction.
This information can be subsequently used to make corrections to posture through specific treatment and exercises, and orthotics, when indicated.
