Gait & Movement Analysis

Anatomy in Motion (AiM) is a powerful methodology which uses gait analysis and movement assessment  to understand why the body is in pain. It was created by Gary Ward who developed a model to be able to analyse what each joint in the body is doing at each phase of the gait cycle. It is a whole body approach that is invaluable in understanding and resolving ongoing issues.

How can AiM help me?

Watching how you walk and move can be the key to unlocking the cause of your symptoms, particularly in cases of re-occurring injury or longstanding pain. Using a combination of assessment techniques we can quickly identify weak links, faulty movement patterns and compensations in your body that may be driving your symptoms. Often these can be far away from your site of pain.

How does it work?

I will watch and video you walk/run to analyse how you move and ask you to perform certain movements to help form a complete picture. I will then use a combination of manual therapy, movement and exercise to get you moving better. There will always be a small component of ‘homework’ which is necessary to create lasting changes.

Who is it for?

Anatomy in Motion is extremely effective for anyone suffering ongoing pain or re-occurring injury. It is also valuable for those wishing to deepen their understanding of how the body moves to maximise their movement potential.

More information on this approach can be found at Finding Centre.

Benefits of AiM

  • Assess the whole body in movement
  • Unravel the cause of re-occurring pain and injury
  • Understand the role of each joint in the body
  • Recognise the importance of the feet on our structure
  • Consider the impact of previous injury on the body
Hi Elly, I survived grading! Just want to say thank you, don’t think I could have if you hadn’t patched me up earlier, it made a real difference.

Just wanted to share, my shoulder pain has eased ! It's been 2 days and the pain level is like a 2 out of 10. So happy, I just wanted to let you know.

Elly I just wanted to thank you for your help with my knee. As I said, I rode 60 miles on Saturday without any knee problems at all. I really appreciate your expertise, and the service at C1 Chiropractic is excellent. You’re all friendly and welcoming, professional and efficient, and I would strongly you recommend you to anyone.

Hi Elly. Hope you had a nice weekend, mine was enjoyable due to a vast improvement with the back pain, the exercises you suggested have really helped and I've reduced painkillers, I feel so much better. Many thanks.

I first visited Elly to treat a persistent shoulder injury that had been causing me pain for some time. Within just a couple of sessions the pain had eased, my mobility had increased and I was able to train as normal. I’ve been having regular sports massage with Elly ever since and find it invaluable for preventing injury, speeding up recovery and improving my flexibility.

I just wanted to say a big thanks to you and Rupert for your splendid tag team treatment last week which has made me feel so much better. Back to training ( albeit very conservatively ) and swimming too. I have a date for my ACL operation early July now but no doubt I will be coming to see you both in the meantime keep as in line as I can before then.

After a year of suffering with a chronic back and hip problem and with no relief from regular treatment by an osteopath I decided to see Elly. Within the first 20 mins she referred me to a Chiropractor and between them both I then received regular treatment over a matter of weeks which has really helped resolve my pain.
