Before each appointment I ask my clients for -
1. a set of 'posture photos'
2. a set of 'foot photos'
3. a 'gait video'.
These also need to be re-photoed and re-sent before each follow up appointment, so we can discuss, assess and check for progressions and changes.
WHAT YOU NEED TO SEND BEFORE EACH APPOINTMENT
1. 4 x 'Posture Photos' - Front, Back, Left, Right (as above)
Get your head and feet fully in.
Get a photo from front, back and both sides (4 photos total).
Take the photos flat on (so not looking up/down at you - this distorts what we see). It helps to take pictures straight on from hip level.
Be relaxed and holding no tension. Feel like you're standing if you would if you were on your own, not posing for a photo.
Try and get a blank wall behind you as this helps us see things better.
Hair tied up and in as few clothes as you feel comfortable with!
2. 4 x 'Foot Photos' - Front and Back (both close up) and the underside of both feet (This will help demonstrate to you how your weight is distributed as you walk). Pictured below.
3. 1 x 'Gait Video' (a video of you walking up and down away from the camera over about a 5 metre distance. Do this a few times so the video is about 20 - 30 seconds long.)
