Biomechanical assessment

Conducting a biomechanical assessment helps us see exactly how your body moves, and helps us determine any underlying mechanical issues.

 

During the assessment we will test and assess your ranges of joint motion, muscle strength, gait, and your footwear.

 

Following this, we will be able to determine a personalised treatment plan for you. 

Orthopedic Insoles

Orthotics

Orthotics are devices which we use to balance or align your feet.

 

Many people’s feet may not be functioning as effectively as they should, and this can lead to pain, not just in your foot or ankle, but also your knees, hips and lower back; after all our feet are out first point of contact with the ground and if they aren’t doing the ‘right’ thing, the rest of the body follows this.

Acupuncture
Podiatry Dry needling 

Dry needling is a technique similar to acupuncture where a thin sterile needle is inserted into an area of muscle that has developed a ‘knot’.

 

The aim of the treatment is to release the ‘knot’ (myofascial release). Dry needling has so many benefits including; reducing muscular pain and swelling, increasing mobility, and promoting healing and speeding up injury recovery times!
