Body Chiropractic and Brock Chiropractic are proud to now provide
digital video analysis for our athletes and golfers to further
enhance their sport performance. It is designed to be a motion "X-ray"
for the muscles. It allows our chiropractors and massage therapists
to see exactly what your muscles, tendons and ligaments are doing to
propel your body through a run or a swing.
Welcome to Digital
Video Analysis Digital Video Analysis is a two step process
whereby anyone with or without injury can have their biomechanics
evaluated. The athletes are digitally video taped to determine areas
of function and dysfunction, within their musculoskeletal system.
The footage is reviewed with the patient. Recommendations are made
toward improving biomechanics (either through chiropractic, ART,
massage, physio, gaitscan,
exercise or pilates), and then a post treatment film is shot to
document the differences.

runner/triathlete after treatment with chiropractic and ART.

Gaitscan System The TOG gaitscan is a computerized system
that uses a forceplate with 4096 sensors, taking 125 scans per
second to make a digital map of your foot during standing, walking
and running. This ground breaking technology helps professional
atheletes better understand their biomechanics during activity. With
this information we can help you determine whether you are in the
right shoe for your sport and in your activities of daily living.
The TOG system can also determine whether you would be a candidate
for orthotics, and ultimately if they would benefit your
biomechanics and impact your performance.
also benefit from TOG gaitscan system. The information generated
from the scans measures the distribution of force throughout the
patients foot during each step, identifiyng gait abnormalities and
high pressure areas at risk for ulcerations. Approximately 70% of
all diabetic ulcers of the foot end with amputation in Canada.
Therefore, it is imperative that all diabetic patients seek a
computerized gait and pressure analysis test to determine if they
are at risk for plantar ulcer formation. The TOG gaitscan data is
used to produce a specialized custom orthotic that will help reduce
peak pressure areas by distributing weight evenly thereby
alleviating increased pressure points on the bottom of the foot
where ulcers may form.
your appointment Both the digital video analysis and
gaitscan can be completed at the clinic in the same visit. Patients
have the option of just having one of the above services performed.
Recommendations for gaitscan or digital video analysis will be made
if indicated for performance increase. Call the clinic at
