Bio Mechanics​​

Biomechanics involves the prevention, diagnosis and assessment of the structure, alignment and function of muscles, bones and joints of the feet and lower limb.

It covers:

  • Sprained Ankles
  • Heel pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Instability
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Recurrent limb pains in children (growing pains)
  • Sports injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Limb length discrepancy
  • Plantar Fasciitis

 

A Biomechanical assessment takes 45 minutes and will consist of a mixture of sitting and standing examinations for the podiatrist to examine any abnormalities in the way in which the lower limbs work in order to establish the correct treatment plan. This may involve prescribing pre-formed, or sometimes custom-made, orthotics and certain stretches and footwear advice.
