Biomechanics Assessment

Biomechanical assessment is performed by an Orthotist who will assess and diagnose your problem. A biomechanical assessment may include the following:

  • Slow motion video gait analysis
  • Physical examination
  • Kinematic and kinetic testing (see blog).
  • Footwear evaluation
  • Diagnosis and formulation of treatment plan
  • Onward referral to a specialist clinician (e.g. Podiatric Consultant) for further investigation including x-ray, MRI scan and diagnostic ultrasound

To your assessment, you should bring footwear that you regularly wear and perhaps footwear that causes you problems. If you expect to have a running gait analysis, it is important to bring your trainers and perhaps some shorts. A biomechanical assessment may take up to 1 hour and sometimes orthotic fitting appointments may be required depending on the treatment plan suggested.
