What are Biomechanics?
Why are Biomechanics important?
How do Biomechanics inform diagnosis??
Biomechanics informs diagnosis by allowing us to understand how your body is functioning. Where there are areas which need intervention, we can prescribe a course of treatment aimed at improving these areas. The treatment is likely to involve prescription of orthotics which help to improve the function of the feet, along with specific exercises to help strengthen and/or stretch specific muscles. Depending on your diagnosis, there are other treatments options which may also be advised such as Shockwave therapy, manual therapy and ultrasound guided steroid injections.
By using biomechanics we are able to diagnose the specific problems and provide the most appropriate course of treatment.
