Gait Analysis

Make an Online Appointment

While we at Gear West will make sure that any shoe you buy from us is the perfect style for you with a perfect fit, some of our customers want a little more input. For those with challenging injuries, constant aches and pains, muscle tightness, and those who think they could improve their performance with some biomechanical work, we offer a specialized Gait Analysis service. Our resident "shoe whisperer", Wendi Morin, performs these analyses, which cost $50.00 and take approximately 30 minutes.

This analysis includes the following evaluations and recommendations:

  • Arch and foot evaluation
  • Ankle, knee, hip, and back alignment evaluation
  • Muscle weakness and imbalance check
  • Pelvic rotation check
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Arch support evaluation
  • Suggested strengthening exercises
  • Shoe model recommendation including a full explanation of reasoning behind shoe pick.
