What is Biomechanical Assessment and when do you need it?
Are you active? Do you enjoy walking, running, playing football, golf, rugby? Sometimes you might experience pain in your ankles, arches, under the ball of your foot or in other areas. It can be sharp, aching, sometimes in the morning or after a walk. It comes and goes or may be always there. If you can’t see anything on your foot (redness, corn, verruca), it can be due to overuse of certain structures inside the foot (tendons, muscles, joints).
In this case biomechanical assessment can help.
We as a podiatrist, can look at the way you walk, and the structure of your feet, legs and hips.
We can tell you if your shoes need changing, advise you on exercises that can help loosen tight muscles or recommend orthotics that are the best for you. We will try to get you up and running as soon as possible!
