Gait & Biomechanics Assessment

Gait & Biomechanic Assessment is a process that investigates limb alignment and posture, muscle length and strength, and considering movement quality in relation to an individuals sport.

The Benefits

Biomechanical problems are often the cause of recurrent or prolonged injuries. If you suffer with recurrent or successive niggling injuries, it is likely there is a biomechanical cause. Biomechanics assessment can assist in treating many common problems such as:

  • Flat feet / Knock knees / Poor general posture
  • Foot or Ankle pain
  • Achilles Tendon problems
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Knee cap pain
  • Recurrent Low Back pain
  • Recurrent muscle strains despite training

What’s involved

Biomechanical assessment involves investigating limb alignment and posture, muscle length and strength, and considering movement quality in relation to the individuals sport. Assessment typically involves joint and muscle screening, walking / running on a treadmill whilst being videoed, and walking / running over a force plate. This information can be used to identify the specific problem and provide a rehabilitation programme tailored to the individual. This may also include the use of orthotics in footwear. The vast majority of biomechanical problems can be solved through simple but specific exercises, providing the individual with lasting relief.
