Project Description

Biomechanical Assessments

A biomechanical assessment isn’t as scary as it sounds! Make an appointment to see me as a fully qualified podiatrist, and one of the first things I’ll do is take a good look at the way you walk and the way you stand. I may examine your legs and feet to see where the bones and muscles are not working together as well as they might. It’s common for people’s legs to be slightly different lengths, but anything more than a few millimetres is going to affect the way you walk, and can often give rise to back pain or problems with your knee joints.

Orthotics

Orthotics – from the Greek word meaning “to straighten” or “to align” – is name for the study and application of the use of orthoses. These are often insoles, designed to slip into your shoes to give your feet, ankles and legs the right support so that any pronation (flat feet or rolling over of your ankles) or twisting is corrected. The right orthoses can make walking a joy again – but beware, the wrong ones can make your problems worse. Make sure your orthotic insoles, leg braces or ankle supports are properly prescribed by a qualified podiatrist – get in touch with me today.

Off the Shelf and Bespoke Orthoses

Once I’ve made a thorough biomechanical assessment, I’ll prescribe any orthotic aids that will be of help. I’ll make sure they fit your feet and your shoes properly, and re-assess your gait (the way you walk) to satisfy myself that we’ve got the right ones. Usually, problems can be resolved with an off-the-shelf orthosis, but occasionally we may have to take a mould of your foot and get them made to measure.
