What will happen at my biomechanical assessment at A Foot Above?
Your biomechanical assessment will be completed by our Degree-qualified Allied Health Professionals. Your appointment will usually take around 90 minutes. At your appointment, we’ll spend time finding out about you and your lifestyle to allow us to find the right solution for your issue. We’ll also look closely at areas such as your muscle strength, the range-of-motion you have in your lower limb joints and other issues. Your biomechanical assessment will mainly focus on your hip, knee and ankle joints and may include gait analysis, using the latest technology.
We’ll create a treatment plan that’s right for you
We’ll use all this information to create a treatment plan which matches you and your lifestyle. If your condition is caused by a mechanical imbalance of a joint, our clinicians may prescribe orthotics. Orthotics are devices designed to improve the way in which joints are aligned and take the form of shoe inserts or custom-made insoles. We focus on what our clients need, which is why we offer biomechanical assessment/orthotics appointments at convenient times at our Chiropody/Podiatry and Foot Healthcare clinics in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
