Biomechanical Assessment

biomechanical assessment involves taking a thorough history of the patient, including how long the patient’s symptoms have been present, what has triggered these symptoms, have they made any changes to their footwear, and what kind of activities are they taking part in that might make their pain or stiffness worse. Once this has been done, a full assessment is then carried out. A biomechanical assessment is important because it accurately identifies the underlying causes of lower limb and back pain, and our physiotherapists can then effectively choose a treatment to relieve your pain.

Physiotherapists are professionally trained to detect biomechanical faults like:

  • Flat feet
  • Foot, knee or hip pain during walking or running
  • Leg length discrepancy
  • Abnormal gait(walking style)
  • Foot drop

Our physiotherapy services includes detail assessment.The physiotherapist will look at the position of the hips, legs, knees and feet in standing and how they move in walking or running and choose the treatment protocol accordingly such as:

  • Stretching the tight muscles
  • Strengthening the weak muscles
  • Providing insoles
  • Adapting walking style
  • Muscle imbalance correction
  • Using electrical modalities for pain
  • Advice on activity/posture
