Pain is your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong, so if you have pain in your feet, ankles, legs, hips or back, a biomechanical assessment can be more than helpful. A biomechanical assessment is an investigation into the mechanics of your lower limb function, and is carried out by a qualified podiatrist. While you may be suffering from pain in the feet, the cause of your pain may actually lie further up the biomechanical chain. I will assess your lumbar spine, hips, knees, ankles and feet, as necessary while also assessing the strength of your muscles. A complete gait cycle begins when one foot makes contact with the ground and ends when the same foot makes contact with the ground for a second time. If an asymmetry is present between the left and right hand side of the body or feet, then this can cause a biomechanical dysfunction, which is a change in the musculoskeletal mechanics resulting in faulty movement patterns. These movements will manifest as pain or a reduction in your movement potential and mobility. I can solve incorrect pathological gait and faulty movement patterns with the use of bespoke or simple orthotics placed into your footwear, to help redistribute pressure away from those joints and tissues under stress. Whatever your condition or sport I am able to provide an orthotic that works for you.
