Pain is the bodies way of letting you know something is wrong. If you have pain in your feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips, back or neck an biomechanical assessment can help.

One of the main problems that can be helped is heel pain. A biomechanical assessment will last approximately 60 minutes and usually leads to an orthotic prescription.

Initailly a detailed history of both medical and presenting problems will be taken.

A detailed footwear assessment and advice given.

A podiatrist will then observe and measure the range of joint motion, muscle strength and flexibility, looking for misalignments in the feet legs pelvis and shoulders. Assessing any postural problems within the skeletal system which may be causing pain or discomfort. That could arising from the foot or the lower limb.

Weight bearing and none weight bearing assessments, observations of walking bare footed and in footwear will be made.

After the assessment a weight bearing or none weight bearing cast of the foot will be taken to produce a pair of bespoke orthotics (made to measure insoles), if required.
