Biomechanical Functional Assessments

These are performed to analyse the function of the lower limbs and feet. Abnormalities can be determined and help identify how the body is compensating for these irregularities.

Flat feet, injuries after sports or accidents, physical anomalies such as a shorter leg, bowed or sway back knees, strain on hips, spinal injury or deformity or even excessive weight can cause problems which can often be resolved using a personalsed orthotic.

Children with flat feet or particularly high arches can often be helped following a gait analysis during the biomechanical assessment, so that they may develop into adulthood without causing further physical problems.
