Biomechanical and Musculoskeletal Assessment

Many problems in the lower limb, knee, hip, pelvis and lower back are associated with the way our feet strike, contact and leave the ground at every step we take.

The way we stand, walk and run in our everyday lives can increase stresses within the foot structure and surrounding soft tissues creating localised pain. In many cases, the problem may lie in a number of areas such as poor posture, pelvic misalignment, leg length discrepancies and tight or poorly toned muscles. Stroke, nerve injury, sedentary and over active lifestyles will also contribute.

At Podiatry and Chiropody Clinic in Rye and St Leonards on Sea near Hastings we provide a comprehensive biomechanical and musculoskeletal assessment service to help us identify the cause of your injury or problem resulting from daily wear and tear and activity /sporting injuries. We assess children, adolescents and adults and offer a range of  rehabilitation options

Feet are your body’s foundation

Our Prescription Orthotics using our 3D Foot Scanning System can help

Our comprehensive biomechanical and musculoskeletal assessment focuses on the underlying structures and function of the foot, ankle and knee joints and further includes the pelvis and lower back whilst assessing the relationship between them. The biomechanical assessment highlights compensatory movements at the pelvis and throughout the lower limbs and particularly at the major joints of the ankle and foot.

Our biomechanical & muskuloskeletal assessment will identify any need for treatment which may include appropriate rehabilitation exercise, specific footwear advice, exercise prescription or orthotics. We will also advise on injury prevention, X-Ray and MRI imaging if required and make sure you understand all the information given throughout the assessment.
