Any abnormality in the function and alignment of the lower limbs can lead to injury, lower limb pain, lower back pain, abnormal walking patterns and uncomfortable shoe wear.
A comprehensive biomechanical assessment helps to determine the underlying cause for impaired foot function, callus/corn patterns and identify how the body compensates for these irregularities.
In a biomechanical assessment your podiatrist will:
Analyse and explain your foot posture and gait pattern
Review your current footwear and provide advice
Examine the flexibility, mobility and strength of your joints and muscles
Discuss lifestyle and physical elements that impact on your legs and feet
Assess and discuss your specific symptom/s and concern/s as well as give advice on posture improvement, stretching exercises, and other relevant treatment options suitable for your specific needs.
Depending on your assessment findings, we can discuss conservative treatment options through to surgical intervention options.
