Biomechanical Assessment: Everything you need to know
As podiatry experts, we understand that our feet are mechanical marvels with a complex structure of 26 bones and 38 muscles, plus a network of ligaments and tendons, all working in harmony to keep us balanced every day.
But even the miraculous requires an occasional tune-up – and that’s where biomechanical assessment comes in.
At Shuropody, our HCPC registered podiatry experts are available at our in-store foot clinics to perform biomechanical assessments at your convenience.
What is a Biomechanical Assessment?
Stress-free and highly intuitive, a biomechanical assessment is an excellent way of developing a snapshot of how the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of your feet are working together; and how this is affecting the rest of your body.
For example, if you're experiencing recurring pain in your feet, ankles, knees, or even your lower back, a biomechanical assessment can identify the underlying cause and assist you in addressing it with bespoke footcare recommendations.
A biomechanical assessment can also be used to identify reasons for changes to your posture or gait, allowing our podiatry experts to help you to understand how your lower body is functioning, as well as investigating any strength or mobility issues, recommending a tailored regime of stretching and strengthening exercises to remedy the problem.
What happens during a Biomechanical Assessment?
Your consultation will be conducted at one of our in-store foot clinics, by a HCPC registered podiatry expert, who will ask you a series of questions designed to help identify the problem.
Your biomechanical assessment may also involve a physical examination, during which your podiatrist will examine your feet, ankles, knees, and thighs – and sometimes your back, so it can be a good idea to wear looser-fitting clothing to your appointment.
There’s no need to worry about anything, our expert podiatrists will ensure you’re happy and comfortable during the assessment.
