Biomechanical problems

Many of us will suffer from a biomechanical issue at some point in our lives.  As we walk or run our bodies function in varying amounts of efficiency.  When our feet and joints in our ankles and legs are functioning less efficient it can lead to us getting symptoms which can be re-occurring and stop us preforming at our best or even stop us completely.  Among the most common symptoms we complain of are;

  • Foot Ache and pain
  • Back pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Knee Pain
  • Calf Pain
  • Shin Pain
  • Heel Pain
  • Ball of foot Pain
  • Etc

Biomechanical assessment

The assessment includes analysis of your gait cycle, range of motions anaylsis and if required pressure plate anaylsis.  This provides valuable information about how you function and then often gives clues as to how to treat for certain conditions.  Often we will use FMT Foot Mobilisation Therapy to help treat any condition you have.  FMT can sometimes cure the conditon without the need for insoles or orthotics.  

Insoles / Temporary Devices

Often insoles can be seen over the counter at chemists or other shops, these are very general in nature provide an unprescribed amount of support. The insoles I dispense differ in the sense they are prescribed based on what the assessment reveals. They are not simply off the shelf and therefore more likely to help. They are usually issued following an initial biomechanical assessment to correct foot function. They are temporary and therefore will need replacing. However if they have helped it is often wise to consider orthotics for the future.  When functional insole help, custom foot orthotics usually help more!

Orthotics

Custom orthotics are built specifically for you from casts of your feet. They control and stabilise your foot and leg position, to improve your mechanics and reduce or cure symptoms. 

Quintic Gait analysis Software

Quintic digital gait analysis software captures digital video clips on computer and analyses them in a number of ways. Slowing down the video, pausing, splitting, angle finding, zooming in, digitising, synchronising two separate video's are amongst its qualities. Its function is to improve the accuracy of the prescription to you.
