A Biomechanical assessment looks at your walking pattern and leg muscle flexibility to check for abnormalities and compensations and if necessary orthotics may be prescribed. These are custom made devices that are designed to alleviate your pain and discomfort.
Here at Southside physiotherapy clinic we can look closely into the underlying possible causes of heel pain, knee pain and even back pain.
We can advise on the type of device best suited to your needs whether it be an off the shelf device, a prescription insole or an orthotic made from a plaster cast of the foot. We also look at your lower limb flexibility as sometimes something as simple as calf stretches is all that is required to alleviate your symptoms.
