Our body parts are interconnected, and pain in one area can often originate elsewhere. By examining the entire body, Biomechanical Assessments can help diagnose and resolve associative pain and injuries.

WHAT IS BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT?
The assessment involves the examination of the lower limbs, looking at their structure, alignment, strengths and weaknesses. Your Podiatrist will also take into account your lifestyle needs and footwear.
WHY IS BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT IMPORTANT?
The examination is not focused simply upon the foot but includes the entire body, looking at the head, shoulders, pelvis, legs and knees, assessing the relationship between them. It is important to examine the lower limbs because they are closely connected. Pain in one area can be due to a weakness or structural problem in another area, and can often be exacerbated by poor posture and learned habits.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BIOMECHANICAL ASSESSMENT?
An appropriate treatment plan will be discussed and if concluded that orthoses/insoles for your footwear will benefit, then all treatment options will be discussed, whether it is semi-bespoke or fully bespoke insoles that you require. Included in this visit will be information relating to your footwear in order to provide you with the best possible support.
