Biomechanical Assessment

BioassessThe way bones are shaped, joints move and muscles and soft tissues function dynamiclally contributes to the way we walk and move.  During a biomechanical assessment, the joints, muscles and other soft tissues of the lower limb are assessed, with particular detail to areas of pain.  During this assessment, the shape of bones, movement of joints and function of muscles, plus much more, are noted in non-weight-bearing and weight-bearing in order to understand possible causes of pain and dysfunction.  What is noted in the biomechanical assessment will also form part of a ‘prescription’ if providing foot orthoses or braces and forms part of your whole clinical gait analysis assessment.
