What sort of treatment will I need after a Biomechanical assessment?

There are many different types of recommended treatments following a biomechanical assessment, depending upon your results. For people who have good structural foot mechanics, the podiatrist will advise on the best footwear in order to reduce the risk of foot problems. Simple changes such as wearing trainers designed for your gait or wearing insoles can be very effective.

If the podiatrist believes that your mechanics could be contributing to your injury or pain, insoles or custom made orthotics will be prescribed. Other advice can include:

  • Training advice
  • Footwear advice
  • Supply of strengthening and stretching programs
  • Supply of both off the shelf orthoses/insoles
  • Supply of custom made foot orthoses/insoles via true 3-D optical foot scanning
  • Running re-education
