Our biomechanical assessment is a more detailed assessment for anyone who has any of the following problems:
- Foot Pain
- Heel Pain
- Ankle Pain
- Knee Pain
- Hip Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Sports Injury
- Arthritic Pain
Each assessment involves a series of tests that is specific depending on your needs and problem. We listen to your concerns, then work with you to formulate a treatment plan appropriate to get you back to your best!
We ask a series of questions about your concerns. These questions will guide us in which tests we need to perform in order to help resolve your issues.
We listen to your needs so we know your goals and help guide toward them.
We look at how your joints align and move when standing and weightbearing.
Alignment testing- We assess the rearfoot, tibial alignment, Q-angle, leg length, and arch height
Aswell as your alignment we carry out a series of tests to check muscle strength, flexibility and neuromotor control
Flexibility testing- Hip flexor and internal/external rotator muscles, ITB, Hamstrings, Quadriceps, Gastrocnemius and Soleus, and 1st ray movement
Strength testing- Using a dynamometer we test strength in hip flexors, internal and external rotators, abductor muscles, Hamstrings, ankle invertors and evertors
During assessment we use a force plate to analysis the pressures going through your feet when standing and walking.
We will watch you walk, whether this be on the treadmill or up and down the clinic room/ corridor so we can look at how you move
Once we have all your results we can then work together to formulate a specific treatment plan to help achieve your goals.
A biomechanical assessment is great for assessing your movement in 2D and helping with any issues you may have. However, if you require an assessment in much more depth then that is what the Run3D equipment can offer. Run3D is the most up to date and advanced technology that is like an MRI of your movement. It offers assessment using motion analysis cameras as used in clinical labatories and elite sports centres, in order to accurately identify the cause of your problem using data driven science.
