What happens in an appointment?
A Biomechanical Assessment is not focused exclusively on your feet – we also assess your ankles, legs, knees, hips, pelvis and even your back and neck.
The examination by our Podiatrist means we assess structure, how you are aligned, and any strengths and weaknesses that you have.
Our gait specialist will analyse your foot type and shape, the way you stand and walk, and the way your body is aligned, then we can make any necessary adjustments if they are required. We can also advise you on stretching and strengthening exercises and taping techniques to help you get the best result.
Once you have been assessed, we will offer you the necessary advice and course of treatment, making sure you are aware of the next steps in getting you back to feeling your best.
Our Biomechanics experts are also skilled in general Podiatry, addressing conditions such as:
- corns, callus and hard skin
- verrucae (plantar warts)
- skin disorders / infections
- in-growing toenails
- nail cutting and nail surgery
- diabetic foot care
- footwear advice
- nail cutting and surgery
Appointments last between 30 and 60 minutes.
