Biomechanics and Gait

Podiatrists are trained to examine the lower limb to assess if the position of the feet is causing alignment problems within the body and what affect this may have on soft tissue such as ligaments, tendons and muscle. 

At FootMed a biomechanical assessment initial involves taking a detailed history of your condition.  You will then be assessed standing, sitting, walking and running where necessary.  A scan will be taken of each foot, whilst weight bearing, on our Amfit Contact Digitiser.  This technology enables us to design custom made orthotics with ease, accuracy and speed.

At the conclusion of your assessment a treatment plan will be discussed. This may include the use of orthotics, physiotherapy, GP referral, sports massage, exercises, footwear or a combination thereof. 

Appointment duration is 60 minutes.
