what is gait analysis?at saan nagpapaganun?
sorry no idea about the term.
Gait analysis looks at your body's movement (biomechanics) during running. It is commonly used to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify movement-related problems for people who have injuries.
During gait analysis, you will be asked to walk and run on a treadmill while a video records your movement. A slow-motion detailed analysis may then be performed to show and explain your biomechanics, specifically looking at pronation.
Pronation is the turning-inward movement of the foot that occurs when your foot touches the ground when you take a step. During walking and running this acts as cushioning for the body.
Each person's foot is slightly different, but there are three main types of pronation:
- neutral pronation
- underpronation, also known as supination
It is useful to know what type you are as this affects the type of trainers you should wear.
A neutrally pronating foot will step with the outside of the heel or mid part of the foot. The foot then rolls inwards so that your weight is spread evenly across the front part of your foot. During this stage, your knee will normally follow the direction of your second toe. The 'rolling inwards' motion of your foot as your weight shifts acts as a cushioning for your body.
Neutral pronation is most efficient for running as it provides your body with the most amount of cushioning, as well as keeping your lower limbs balanced and your trunk aligned.
This occurs when the foot rolls inwards too much. This causes your weight to spread unevenly, putting excessive weight on your big toe. This puts increased stress on your bones, muscles and tendons. It can also cause your leg to turn inwards putting your knee and hip out of alignment.
Overpronation can be a factor in the developing many common overuse running injuries such as Achilles tendinopathy, medial tibial stress syndrome and stress fractures.
Most people overpronate slightly, especially people with flat feet. These people should wear motion control or stability trainers to help control the excessive rolling inwards motion and maintain good alignment. Additionally, overpronation can be corrected using orthotics. Orthotics are special in-soles that fit in your shoes, for example, arch supports.
Underpronation is the opposite of overpronation - your feet don't roll inwards enough. This is often happens if the arches of your feet are high. This causes excessive weight on the outside bone of your foot. As with overpronation, this results in poor cushioning for your body which may make stress fractures more likely.
People who underpronate should wear cushioned trainers with maximum shock absorption to reduce the stress on their lower legs and back.Orthotics Orthotics are special insoles worn in your shoe that aim to realign your foot and correct poor biomechanics.
You can buy ready made orthotics or have them custom made. It is important to seek the advice of a professional, such as a podiatrist, before using orthotics as the wrong type of device may do more harm than good.
^YES! it is for free.
wag ka mag alala kahit hindi ka bumili ng sapatos sa kanila ok lang.
I'm on the look-out for a new running shoe since my trusty Asics GT 2150 finally gave up after TBRDM. I've been using it since 2010 for my training and official races.
So far, I have trimmed down my choices to the following.
1. NB Minimus Zero
2. Nike Lunarglide+ 3
3. Adidas Supernova Glide 4
4. Asics GT 2170
Are there any of you guys who use any of them? Feedback naman. Thanks.
^addidas supernova glide. parehas lang sa sapatos ko. ok naman siya sarap ipang takbo.
Go with what works for you. Iba iba naman kasi mga paa natin eh. so what is ok for me might not be ok for you.
if sa store palang eh feel mo na hindi siya ok sa paa mo edi go with another shoe.
2.5k you can just go to surplus stores and look for a decent running shoe there. A lot of the shoes there are still brand new. You'll know by checking the sole.
