What is Biomechanics?
By definition, Biomechanics is simply the study of the human motion; however, when linked explicitly to the podiatry industry, relates to the alignment and functionality of the feet, ankles and legs. When visiting a reputable podiatrist, a biomechanics assessment will be utilised to determine not only the cause of injury but also the structure of the foot. The feet are the only part of the body that differs and is unique to the individual as the limb needs to be capable of adapting to allow you to walk upright and remain balanced on any surface.
During a biomechanics assessment at MK Feet Podiatric Clinic, your dedicated podiatrist will run a series of tests, along with carrying out a visual examination to uncover the underlying structure of not only the feet but also the legs, ankles, thighs and back; all of which commonly suffer from pain due to foot-related problems. In doing this, a treatment plan can then be devised to ease the pain and keep the risk of a reoccurrence at a minimum. One of the most common components of a treatment plan continues to be the use of orthotics; more information on this can be found on our orthotics page.
