A biomechanical assessment involves an in-depth and complex evaluation of your pelvis, knees, ankles and feet. It takes into account how your weight load is transferred through your joints and bones and how these interact with your working muscles, tendons and fascia.
When combining this weight transfer with gait, poor posture, biomechanical issues and forces such as velocity and gravity, injuries can easily occur. It is vital we discover these underlying biomechanical issues, in order to help treat these injuries and more importantly stop them from re-occurring.
Here at Injury Mechanics we provide biomechanical assessments with video software to assess your movement and gait, in stationery, standing, and sitting and throughout a variety of different sporting movements if required.
We can break this footage down into phases and analyse how your body is performing. Your ankle and foot joints are very complex and a variety of articulations occur in your walking gait. With the addition of the impact and velocity in the running gait, the ankle and foot need adequate stability and strength that a tailored insole can provide.
Common injuries linked to biomechanical imbalances include; Bursitis, tendinitis, tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, patella femoral pain, low back pain, and recurrent muscular strains.
The method of analysis is suitable for anyone suffering from pain but it is particularly useful for runners, walkers and triathletes
