Biomechanical Assessments

Biomechanical Assessments

Foot and leg biomechanics integrates a detailed evaluation of the alignment, structure and function of the feet, legs and lower limb whilst standing and during walking. Abnormal lower limb biomechanics is one of the main causes in the development of pain and injury in the feet, ankles, knees, legs and lower back. Our experienced podiatrists are trained to detect anomalies in ones’ biomechanics that may predispose you to injury.

The information detailed from the assessment and gait analysis assists us to recommend the most effective treatment. This individualised approach for assessment and treatment allows us to gain effective results and prompt recovery from pain and dysfunction.

A biomechanical assessment involves the following:

  • Visual gait analysis
  • Lower limb strength testing
  • Lower limb joint flexibility testing
  • Assessing alignment of foot, leg and knee
  • Assessing for leg length discrepancies
  • Assessing forefoot to rearfoot relationship

By identifying any anomalies and hence improving your biomechanics, your podiatrist can assist greatly in your return to pain free mobility or full recovery of your chosen sport or exercise and most importantly minimising the risk of injury recurrence.
