Biomechanical assessment - £60 – 60 minutes

Podiatry is becoming more and more advanced with biomechanics and the assessment and treatment of how people walk and run. Traditionally if a foot appeared flat then arch supports were used to help lift the foot. Modern techniques have significantly moved on from this. We look now at what the foot is doing and also at how the entire lower limb functions.

Biomechanical problems are not just applicable to the sports men and women; long term chronic lower limb pain can be attributable to poor biomechanical function.

Underlying biomechanical issues commonly lead to the development of many conditions such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Hallux Abducto Valgus (Bunions)
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Knee ankle and foot osteoarthritis
  • Ankle instability
  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain

  • Forefoot pain
