Biomechanical Appointments

During the consultation your podiatrist will assess the range of motion in all joints of the feet, and possibly the knees and hips, if clinically necessary. Muscle testing is also undertaken, looking at strength, symmetry and range of motion.

Postural assessment will also be carried out, to assess such anomalies in shoulder and hip obliquity and torsion, leg length difference and basic foot and ankle stance position, to name a few.

Gait assessment is an integral part of the assessment. Your podiatrist will study the way you walk to assess the efficiency of your gait pattern. Footwear history is also a consideration.
