Biomechanical Assessment
A biomechanical assessment is a assessment of the way your body moves. The movements of your lower limb and feet can affect the rest of your body. If you feet are out of alignment then this can lead to problems with your knees, hips or back. If a problem is found then you may benefit from orthotics. An orthotic is a type of insole that is placed in the shoe and holds the foot in its correct position. Common complaints that indicate the need for a biomechanical assessment include:

  • heel pain/plantar fasciitis
  • forefoot pain
  • bunions
  • toe deformities
  • ankle, knee, hip or back pain
