WHAT IS BIOMECHANICS, GAIT ANALYSIS AND ORTHOTICS?
Biomechanics & gait analysis is the study of the body’s function and movement and its effect on the lower limbs. Pain in the back, hip, knees, feet and ankles can all be caused by changes in the musculoskeletal mechanics and dysfunctional movement of your body.
Clinical observation, pressure plate analysis, balance and coordination tests, strength and range of motion and video analysis is used by our specialist physiotherapists to assess your gait and general body movement.
We can solve incorrect gait and faulty movement with the use of bespoke PHITS (FDA approved) orthotics placed into your footwear to help redistribute pressure away from the joints and tissues under stress. The orthotics are custom 3D printed for comfort, work, boots, running, golf and cycling.
