Biomechanical Podiatry

What is Biomechanical Podiatry?

Biomechanical Podiatry practice aims to diagnose, treat and manage podiatric complaints by examining your body as an entire ‘mechanical’ unit. 

We understand biomechanical anomalies of your legs and feet can cause specific conditions, pain and dysfunction in your feet, ankles, knees, legs and hips, and all that they support.

Your biomechanical consultation at Elite Foot Care begins with advanced diagnoses using the most current methodologies in podiatry and biomechanics.

Initial Biomechanical Consultation 

The presenting injury/symptom will be assessed upon relevant medical history, conditions, occupational hazards and physical activities. Once a thorough medical screening has been conducted, the particular condition will be assessed and diagnosed

Conservative treatment for acute injuries will begin immediately. If further investigation is warranted, the patient will be referred for an X-ray, Ultrasound, MRI etc.

If a chronic condition or injury is present relating to the patients biomechanical function, the patient will be advised to return for a biomechanical examination and gait analysis.

Gait Analysis

Walking and running will be assessed with video analysis giving us the most accurate information to evaluate the patients upper body functions through to their lower limbs.
