How it works

At human repair shop our Physiotherapy treadmill gait analysis is a specialised assessment technique used  to evaluate and analyse walking/ running patterns while using a treadmill. It is a valuable tool that helps our physiotherapists diagnose and treat various musculoskeletal, neurological, and biomechanical conditions affecting a person’s running gait.

What are the benefits 

  • Reduce the risk of injury 
  • Run/walk more efficiently, longer and faster 
  • help your running economy,  efficiency
  • Rid of poor habits that are slowing you down 
  • Reduce injury recurrence 

How we do it

We listen to your Goals:

Let’s start you off on the right foot, we take the time to listen to your specific running goal. Whether you’re re-engaging with running following a hiatus, seeking a lifestyle transformation, recuperating from surgery, aiming to participate in your inaugural fun run, or an experienced runner aspiring for enhanced performance. We at human repair shop are here to listen to you, so we can give you a road map for your success. 

Physiotherapy Assessment:

Then your physiotherapist conducts a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment of your medical history, including any injuries, surgeries, or neurological conditions that may impact your running gait. 

Treadmill Running Gait Analysis: 

We use a combination of video gait technology analysis and physiotherapy biomechanical assessment. Assessing for muscle weakness, restriction or imbalances that could be hampering your performance or creating injury.  Video running analysis will measure parameters such as step length, stride length, step width, cadence (steps per minute), and stance/swing phases. Giving you a complete assessment to get you running right again. 

Put together a Plan:

Once our physiotherapist interprets your running gait analysis and biomechanical assessment we can develop a targeted treatment plan. We use a combination of: 

  • Physiotherapy treatment to treat any muscular or joint issues.  
  • Physio led Pilates core strengthening exercises to correct any muscle imbalances

No need to bring in any x-rays, CT scans or MRI’s , with your permission we can access them for you electronically. Making your visit stress free. 

We accept all major health funds so you are not out of pocket.

I was there today for a running technique assessment. Orla was so thorough and knowledgeable in her ability to diagnose my issues and show me the exercises to fix it. She and Tony didn't try to upsell me, they didn't need to Their professionalism and kindness is enough, they clearly love what they do, and want their clients to be healthy and happy. 5 stars!

Treatment at The Human Repair Shop is commendable. Tony and Orla always have a wide smile to greet their patients, creating a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. After detailed & appropriate questioning, physio Orla Cunningham targets each problem with obvious professionalism. Her techniques surely improve the patient's blood circulation which in turn reduce muscle tension and general fatigue. Suggested exercises are an integral part of her approach. You invariably leave the Human Repair Shop feeling refreshed and rejuvenated ... and receive a warm "Goodbye".

Orla & Tony have created a charming and relaxing physio/pilates/wellness studio. I had met Orla previously in a physio capacity and she is outstanding. Orla mixes it up in the Pilates classes so you never get bored. I feel fantastic after a class. Would highly recommend Human Repair Shop.

I feel exceptionally fortunate to have found Orla to help me recover from a trimalleolar ankle fracture. I was 6 months pregnant when I broke my ankle and didn't realise how much I needed a physio who was not only clinically exceptional but also incredibly thoughtful, considerate and professional. Orla and Tony have created a brilliant community and genuinely care for their clients, I cannot recommend the Human Repair Shop more highly.

Orla took the time to talk me through my injury and the recovery process and explained what exercises to do and why. She provided a clear recovery program that’s easy to follow. I’m definitely feeling more positive now about getting back to full health
