Biomechanical Assessment

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
