SHOE WEAR CAN IDENTIFY GAIT PROBLEMS

The best way to find out whether your gait is a healthy one is to visit a podiatrist for an assessment, says Mark Lin, the podiatrist in charge of the Gold Coast’s Footwork Clinic. The second-best way is to look at the way your shoes wear once you’ve walked or run a few miles in them.

“Examining worn footwear can help parents to identify a need to address gait problems in children,” says Lin. “Early corrections are easier to achieve and are less likely to be complicated by years of injuries sustained because of poor alignment of the lower limbs.”
