What Is Involved In A Biomechanical Assessment?
- Examining your history of previous injuries, pre-disposed conditions,
- Examining your bones, muscles, joints, nerves and ligaments during movement
- Discussing your lifestyle, occupational and physical activities to gain
insight into the overall picture.
Depending on your situation, there may be a need for further diagnostic tests
that will require you to be referred for x-ray, ultrasound, MRI, etc.
Once all these factors have been assessed, a diagnosis will be given.
Gait analysis is where your walking and/or running technique is analysed. Information from the gait analysis and biomechanical assessment will help to form part of your tailored treatment plan.

Your treatment may include one or a combination of the following:
