A Biomechanical assessment involves analysis of joint position, alignment and range of movement whilst standing or lying on a couch. This is to help establish problems caused or exacerbated by foot and lower limb posture and alignment.
An assessment may include gait analysis, where your walking or running is analysed. The use of pressure plates to show foot contact and pressure distribution may also be used.
Treatment may include stretching and strengthening programs and the use of in shoe devices, (orthotics).
