What is a Biomechanical Assessment?
A biomechanical assessment is a detailed evaluation of the mechanics of the human body in regards to specific motions. This can include, but is not limited to: skeletal alignment evaluation, muscle strength testing, range of motion testing, evaluation of angular relationships of segments of the foot, leg, knees and hips, and sensory testing
During your assessment, a Certified Pedorthist will conduct a detailed biomechanical assessment of your foot, ankle, and lower leg to determine the specialized treatment required to alleviate pain and improve mobility.
This assessment will include:
- Evaluation of relevant medical history
- Footwear evaluation
- Foot and ankle range of motion testing
- Muscle strength testing
- Skeletal alignment evaluation
- Evaluation of positional relationships between the different segments of the foot, ankle, knees and hips
