Any abnormality in the function and alignment of the lower limbs can lead to injury, lower limb pain, abnormal gait patterns and shoe wear.
A comprehensive biomechanical assessment helps to determine the underlying cause for impaired foot function, identify how the body compensates for these irregularities and to correct the issues arising from any alignment issue.
In a biomechanical assessment your podiatrist will:
Analyse your foot posture and gait pattern
Review your current footwear
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 symptoms and concern as well as give advice on posture improvement, stretching exercises, and other relevant treatment options
