The dr. Francisco Gallardo Rodríguez, specialist in Sports Medicine of Top Doctors, will tell us about the dynamic study of the march.
What is the dynamic study of gait?
It is a detailed analysis of the walking patterns of an individual in order to obtain data that allow us to prevent and treat certain pathologies of the locomotor system.
Who should do it and how often?
This test belongs to a multidisciplinary field. It can be done by a traumatologist, a sports doctor, enters the field of podiatry, physiotherapy. It depends on whether the person practices sports or not, depends on what pathology we are dealing with. And the frequency, I would recommend once a year, especially if this person has an important sport habit.
What injuries can avoid this kind of studies?
This sports test mainly allows us to prevent and diagnose overload injuries, injuries that have a biomechanical origin in the repetition of a gesture, ie, tendinitis, chronic muscle injuries, joint injuries, cartilage lesions, whose origin is in an evil alignment of the lower extremities in a large number of cases.
