Gait Assessment Case Study

Case Study – Gait Assessment

25-year-old sales manager Chris was complaining of left knee pain and right big toe pain.

Neale Browne, HCPC registered Muscular Skeletal Podiatrist, assessed his gait and foot position on a treadmill and determined that Chris had a slight leg length difference (left longer than the right) and pronating feet.

In this first video above, we can see that Chris had overpronated feet that caused the inner arches to collapse and affect foot function. The leg length difference increased excessive movement at the pelvis increasing internal rotation of the left knee. Foot orthoses were prescribed to support his arches and to reduce the leg length difference.

After a fitting consultation (see second video below) Chris noticed a considerable reduction in his knee pain and the pain in the big toe was completely gone.
