Biomechanical Assessment

This area looks at the function of muscles, tendons and joint ligaments. An assessment specifically examines the movement and available strength in the lower limbs to identify problems with alignment, structure, and any weakness.

Gait Analysis

Gait analysis is used to identify underlying mechanical problems which may be contributing to pain, instability

or weakness in the spine, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles and/or feet whilst walking, running or playing sport. 

Further information is acquired through Video analysis whilst walking or running.

Orthotics and Insoles

Medical devices which are prescribed following assessment

A 3D scan or moulds are taken to ensure seamless fitting to your foot

Orthotics can be bespoke or customised.

 

As part of your treatment plan it may be necessary to refer you to health professionals such as Physiotherapists and Orthopedic/Podiatric surgeons. 

 

We can request appropriate investigations such as x-ray, ultrasound and MRI
