Gait Analysis

The Sling Method | Gait Analysis

5 reasons why you need to have a gait analysis

 

1. You are serious about becoming a stronger, faster athlete that’s able to withstand the structural demands of a high intensity or high volume workout schedule.

2. You’re fed up of not reaching your potential as an athlete or are stepping up your speed or distance goals

3. You keep getting injured or have niggles that inhibit you from going faster, longer and limit your consistency.

4. You want to get the best advice based on human biomechanics and physiology for how we as humans, move.

5. Your physical therapist hasn’t helped or just doesn’t seem to know why you keep getting injured

Online Video Gait Cycle Analysis $249

You will have access to all the online videos and tutorials to help you through the process and further access to guidance in the private The Sling method Facebook group.You take your own videos (we will guide you how to do this) in slow motion, on your phone, and send them to us on Google Drive, Facebook Messenger, or WhatsApp messenger.

We analyse the videos and using our trademark The Sling Method full body gait analysis profiling system.

You will receive a spreadsheet detailing out a 12 week plan with what you need to work on to improve your gait.

You will receive a copy of the Runners’ Rehab & The Basic 8 Ebook.

A 20 minute Skype video call with Paul after the analysis is completed, to ask any questions you may have.

You will have access to all the online videos and tutorials to help you through the process and further access to guidance in the private The Sling method Facebook group.

What do we need in order to give you a full gait analysis by video?

15-30 seconds of FULL BODY video footage with an iphone camera or equivalent from both the BACK and the SIDE angles (front angle if possible) on a treadmill, is all we need to be able to give you the information to be able to give yourself a full body overhaul. The video footage needs to be perfectly straight on (no diagonal angles) and at hip height. Ideally the videos will be in slow motion.

What does a gait analysis get me?

Every gait analysis comes with step by step instructions on releasing tightnesses specific to you

Every gait analysis also gets you a complimentary copy of The Runners’ Rehab & The Basic 8 ebook and access to all the videos on The Sling Method FB page to help you back to the best running of your life.

The “Human Gait Cycle” refers to locomotion achieved through the movement of human limbs. Human gait is defined as bipedal, biphasic forward propulsion of center of gravity of the human body, in which there are alternate sinuous movements of different segments of the body with least expenditure of energy. Different gait patterns are characterized by differences in limb movement patterns, overall velocity, forces, kinetic and potential energy cycles, and changes in the contact with the surface (ground, floor, etc.). Human gaits are the various ways in which a human can move, either naturally or as a result of specialized training.

The Sling Method is based in the TRANSVERSE (rotational) plane of motion because that is how the human body moves when we walk, run, and throw. These movements are of the most importance of genetic priority for humans.

It is a simple fact that if we overload the other planes of motion too much then we will inhibit our movement in the transverse plane. In basic terms, this means we are fighting our natural movement patterns and causing certain muscles to over work and the likely result is injury.

When we move in the transverse plane, the body stabilises in the other two planes. Stabilisation and stiffness/rigidity in the muscles of the transverse plane forces these muscles to overwork in an isometric fashion which causes tightness and stiffness when they become overloaded.

The Runners’ Rehab and The Basic 8 takes you through all you need to know to fix your gait biomechanics and to keep them working for the long term.

Stop training your body like a bodybuiler and start training it to move like a human being!
