What is it?

A biomechanical assessment is a 45min comprehensive lower limb and foot examination. Cost £105.

What happens during an appointment?

During this assessment, your podiatrist will ask you a range of questions to obtain as much information as possible to understand the problem; including your medical and other therapy history, activity levels, timeframe of the pain and where the pain is located. Your podiatrist will then conduct a range of physical tests which examine:

  • Stance / standing position
  • Walking patten
  • Joint range of movement
  • Muscle strength/weakness.

These tests show how well your joints and muscles are working together.

  • You will then be asked to perform a range of movements on the FootScan. The Footscan is a sophisticated technology that allows us to analyse your gait and foot pressure distribution, helping us to identify potential imbalances or inefficiencies in your walking, running or exercise technique. 

Do I need to bring anything to an appointment?

We ask that you bring in your main footwear and any images such as x-ray/ultrasound/MRI that you might've had taken in the last 2 years to help with a diagnosis. Advice will be given on best types of footwear for your biomechanics.

Who is this appointment for?

This appointment is for patients who are struggling with an injury to their foot or lower limb.
