BIOMECHANIC AND GAIT ASSESSMENT

We specialize in biomechanical assessments to identify underlying issues and develop personalized treatment plans to enhance your mobility and overall foot health.


Biomechanics refers to the study of how the body moves and the forces acting upon it. In the context of chiropody, biomechanical assessments focus on evaluating the structure, alignment, and function of the feet and lower limbs during various activities such as walking, running, and standing. Common biomechanical issues include:

•    Flat feet (pes planus)
•    High arches (pes cavus)
•    Overpronation or supination
•    Misalignment of joints
•    Muscle imbalances


Biomechanical assessments are essential for identifying contributing factors to foot pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. By thoroughly evaluating your gait pattern, foot structure, joint range of motion, and muscle strength, our chiropodists can pinpoint underlying biomechanical issues and develop targeted interventions to address them. Some key benefits of biomechanical assessments include:


Accurate Diagnosis: Biomechanical assessments help us accurately diagnose the root cause of your symptoms, allowing for targeted and effective treatment.


Prevention of Injury: By identifying biomechanical abnormalities early, we can implement strategies to prevent injuries such as stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendonitis.


Enhanced Performance: For athletes and active individuals, optimizing biomechanics can lead to improved performance, efficiency, and reduced risk of overuse injuries.


Customized Treatment Plans: Based on the findings of your biomechanical assessment, we can develop personalized treatment plans tailored to address your specific needs and goals. This may include orthotic therapy, footwear recommendations, stretching and strengthening exercises, and gait retraining techniques.


At Royal City Foot Clinic we specialize in biomechanical assessments and have extensive experience helping patients overcome foot and lower limb issues. Our compassionate team is dedicated to providing comprehensive care, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and evidence-based practices to optimize your mobility and foot health.
